Peter's New Horizons class goes to Grand Canyon

Today I accompanied 50 kids from the New Horizons classes in 3 schools to the Grand Canyon. New Horizons is a pull out program for the smarties like Peter and Jack. Peter's 5th grade New Horizons class got on the bus at 6am for our partial hike down the Bright Angel Trail.

No this was not one of the students, but a mountain goat near the side of the trail

Here we all are, starting down the trail - beautiful warm day!

Hey look, more wildlife! These guys wouldn't even move if you stepped on them! Very aggressive about getting into your pack if you let them.

Louise Clark and Dave Deutsch, our fearless teachers for the occasion!

OK so now it's getting HOT! We finally came out of the canyon about noon and we were glad to not be going uphill any longer. Here are Peter and his buddy Cody holding up the Bright Angel trail sign.

Finally, some well deserved ice cream after a long, hot hike!
