Trip of a lifetime

Empowering students through summer travel experiences

Lake Tahoe is the most stunning body of water I have ever seen - By Maria S, Summer 2010 Alumnus

Maria Suarez admits nothing could have prepared her for her experience with the summer 2010 Trip of a Lifetime group. She says, “Whitewater Rafting is definitely one experience from the trip that I will never forget. It was a cold, rainy and windy day in Cody Wyoming and everyone was complaining about the weather. We got into groups and filed into the rafts. The wind pushed the raft faster than the usual speed. And the river water was freezing! Every time water splashed into the boat, everyone screamed and tried to not get wet. I thought it was great and funny. Hiking the Grand Tetons was a tiring yet beautiful experience. That was the first time I had ever really hiked. I went up to the top of the mountain and got a magnificent view of the land below. That hike pushed my limits and showed me that I could do more that I thought I could. My favorite place we traveled to throughout the entire trip was Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe is honestly the most stunning body of water I have ever seen in my life. I fell in love with its 3 different colors of water as a boat took us out into the deeper part of the lake to do tubing. The water was so warm and clean compared to the beaches and lakes I’m used to on the east coast. Later that day, we returned to our hotel and geared up for ice-skating at the top of a mountain. I was amazed that we sun bathed and went tubing on a beautiful beach in the morning, and then rode a gondola up to a the top of a mountain and went ice skating up there in the afternoon! That was definitely my favorite day of all.”
