Spring Break 2016 in the American Southwest
Shown: Snapping a selfie during a hike in Zion National Park.
In March 2016, Solebury backpacked through the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park, two of National Geographic’s 20 best hiking destinations. The trip was led by the Director of Outdoor Education, Jared Levy, and our Director of the Global Education Programs, Nicole Mount, who are both certified in wilderness first aid. Athletic Trainer Stacie Anastasio also chaperoned. "This trip was exactly what I expected: a blend of adventure, self-exploration, friendship, and nature's beauty, " said Shuang Liang '16. "I might come back to visit the same sites, but this unique experience filled with wonderful people and uplifting Solebury spirits made the trip a once in a lifetime remembrance. The spring break of my senior year will always remain a precious memory as I move on in life."
