"The highlight for me was when we hiked Half Dome, a seventeen-mile round trip. The trek was physically exhausting yet it stretched our mental endurance to the limit. We arrived at the top just as the sun was peaking and enjoyed lunch overlooking the entire valley. It was truly rewarding and at that moment my burning thighs and aching back were trivial."

"I was a bit nervous not knowing anyone coming in, but on the Telios trip I met a bunch of people and got to know them well. It was easy to make friends because you could go up to anybody and start a conversation. Also, the inner tubing on the last day and the high ropes course was so much fun."
