Climb to Glory! We climbed the Great Sand Dunes!

Wednesday afternoon we drove to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and pitched our tents. We then got to meet some really cool park rangers who taught us about bears, clouds, surviving in the woods and lots of other stuff.

After our cookout dinner we had a big bonfire and a ranger sang us some songs. Then Mr. Booker sang his silly moose song. It was then time to go to our tents and go to sleep. It rained a little while we were in our tents, but we stayed warm.

This morning we got up early, had breakfast and then began to climb the biggest sand dune in the park. It was really hard work and took two hours. But every single one of us made it to the top.

We are swimming now and tonight we are going to have a talent show. Tomorrow we graduate.
