Rangely High School’s Outdoor Education class put the skills they’ve been developing to the test during a two-night trip to Moab, Utah. Students camped, cooked and saw some of the sights. Before earning the trip students had to spend time in class learning how to plan, prepare and cook meals over a campfire, hiking and rock climbing safety and basic survival skills.
As part of the trip students were responsible for the preparation, cooking and cleaning up of meals. They also had the opportunity to climb around rocks on Kane Creek Road, go hiking and visit both Bow Tie Arch and Corona Arch.
Students encountered high winds throughout the trip and thus had to ensure that everything was put away safely as well learn how to sleep in tents with the wind and rain beating down on them.
Despite the challenging weather students had a grand time and hope for similar opportunities in the future.
