The Spirit of Adventure E-term 2016: Watch Out World

By Kelsey Moseley

Lake Junaluska, NC
As we took off this morning everyone was on edge because we didn’t know how the trip was going to go.  Our first stop was gas, which was a complete workout.  Dr. Hardwicke couldn’t find the gas tank on our shuttle so after sitting there for ten minutes we finally discovered it.  We found an AUX cord in the vehicle and jammed out the whole way here. We stopped for breakfast at McDonalds and then stopped again for lunch at Pizza Hut.  By this time we are all tired and ready to be at Lake Junaluska.  Finally around 3:00 we arrived at the lake and checked in.  We had some free time before our class meeting and review session so we spent it doing some meditation, walking around the lake, and reading.

Tonight after class meditation and dinner we took a walk around the trail that circles the lake.  We really can’t get over how pretty it is here and how quiet it is because some of us are used to trains and other loud noises.  We took a lot of pictures today.  During the three mile walk around the lake we saw some swans and geese.  The sun was setting and it was the most beautiful thing I think I have ever seen.  We are really excited about the rest of the week and what it might hold.
