Top of Grouse Mountain
Ahhh... sucess! Here is a photo at the top of Grouse mountain after I completed the grouse grind. My journey to the top of the mountain began where all journeys begin, at the bottom! It was a cool morning with excitment and anticiption in the air as the grade 6 and 7 classes of Hillcrest Elementary prepared to meet the challenge of "natures stairmaster". The climb up the mountain was adventurous and daring. We had to climb over rocks, moss and tree trunks as we made our way to the top. There was a variety of thoughts and moods as the students made the climb. Most found it exhausting and challenging while a few found it exciting. The best feeling was when I saw the light pouring through the trees at the top of the trail, and the sounds of fellow classmates and teachers cheering me on. I knew then,that I had made it! I personally found this experience as a very exciting challenge and am proud to have finished it in 1 hours, 2 minutes 22 seconds. I can't wait until I get to do it again and try and beat my personal best.
