let's ROCK this

For the past few days OL XI has been away at Wilderness Adventure. Here are a few of my favorite memories from the trip:


We were spoiled by getting to stay in an air-conditioned cabin for the night. The food was also great at Wilderness Adventure! And I will forever have fond memories of gathering around in the living room playing games like Truth or Dare and Signs. 


Our team's first session was low ropes. We were paired with Wes' team where we overcame many obstacles and further developed our teamwork. 
My favorite low ropes course was getting Tiffany (our ninja) through the obstacle course of ropes.


Every day we spend together as a team brings us closer and closer. I was so happy to have them there cheering me on when I had to face one of my biggest fears...heights. We also started working on our skit while we were at Wilderness Adventure, and I know our team is gonna create something unforgettable!


On day 2 at Wilderness Adventure our team headed out to the zip line for a WILD ride. We hiked up a mountain to where the zip line started and then were "kicked" off a platform to fly! 

I can't even remember the last time I was on a zip line, but it was soo much fun! I screamed like a baby, that's for sure.


Since I wasn't able to do any high ropes the day before due to thunder and lightning, I wasn't able to overcome my fear of heights. Although at first I was simply relieved, I was kind of disappointed that I didn't get a go at it. So today I climbed the highest rock wall I have ever seen. Yeah, I have climbed indoor rock walls before, but this one was monstrous in comparison! I can't even begin to tell you how GREAT I felt after doing it though.
