On thursday, April 10th it started out as any typical day while at Orion College. I don’t have class on thursday’s so I went for a morning run, and then on the way back ran into my friends Steph, Destiny, Erin, and Pua. They were all working on our Outdoor Ed papers and studying for our exam that was coming up. I decided to join them. While hanging outside at the picnic table, our Outdoor Ed professor Steve showed up. He was going to take Justin, an international student here rock climbing for the day. Plans didn’t work out so instead they were going to a river damn. Steve invited us to tag along if we wanted. The funny thing is we mentioned to him that we were actually working on our Outdoor Ed stuff. He chuckled and said we had plenty of time to work on that “and wouldn’t you rather spend time with your professor.” haha. Soo Pua, myself, and Erin ran to go put our swimsuits on. We would be having an adventure day with our outdoor ed professor! -Something that is veeeerrryy uncommon back in that states: hanging out with your professor.
He took us to the Rocky Creek Dam. We had to hike a while to get there, and go off path and cut through the bush (or back at home – through the woods) to get to it. Such a cool place! There were mini waterfalls everywhere and watering holes. There even was a tunnel that you could swim through – I didn’t do that, but Justin did. It was fun to walk around and explore natures beauty.
