Middletown Adventist students take trip to Yosemite

MIDDLETOWN – "I don't like heights!"


Most of us have, at some point or another, said these words. But not all of us have said them after attending a Yosemite Outdoor Education weekend with Pastor Ryan Van Hook like eighth grader Stephanie Williams did.


A group from Middletown Adventist School went to Yosemite from Aug. 30 to Sept. 3. They were lucky to attend with Pastor Ryan – because he grew up there!


The kids saw lots of deer, some with impressive racks, and even a bear!


They went swimming in Pastor Ryan's swimming hole and did an eight-mile hike.


This trip was educational as well as fun, though.


Sixth grader Stanton Williams learned how tall Glacier Point is and seventh grader Carolyn Benner learned what a terminal moraine is.


What is a terminal moraine anyway? Answer: The debris left behind after a glacier passes through.
