Thursday / Friday: On Thursday morning we learned about different ways to build a fire and what materials to use. We then learned how to read a topographical map, and the importance of maps in the wilderness. After that we drove to Kelly for our camping adventure! We set up our tents for the night and discussed bear safety in the wilderness. We went on a hiking tour of the different plant communities in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and discussed the ways plants adapt to survive in Jackson Hole. After a delicious dinner of burritos, we went to the Murie Museum on Kelly Campus. There, we drew our favorite animals and learned about the legacy of the Murie families. After a long day, we were all ready for bed. We went back to camp and rested up for the next day. We started off Friday morning with bagels and hot chocolate. We broke down the tents, loaded up our gear, and drove back to Jackson Campus. We reflected on our week with artwork and discussion about survival in Jackson Hole.
