What a day to kick off our first full day in the Tetons! We awoke to an incredible clear view of the Tetons. We’ve decided it was the best breakfast view ever. After breakfast we came back for Bible Lesson followed by art instruction, where students practiced painting landscapes on a monochromatic scale. We then suited up and headed out to the field for a good 5 hours of cross country skiing, tracking and snow science. Our students did an awesome job jumping into cross country skiing – it wasn’t easy! They made incredible progress throughout the day perhaps most importantly, did a fantastic job of staying resilient and supporting their team members when frustration would try to kick in. When we returned from the field, we were treated to an up-close view of a moose right by our rooms! Despite being ready for bed, we spent the evening in the Murie museum learning about the conservation legacy of Olaus and Mardy Murie and practiced creating a species account. What a full day!
