- I learned more patience and tolerance .... stepped out of my comfort zone, and did things I didn't think I could do (dropping down the sqaw valley snow covered ski lift!!)

-and received the most amazing-mind blowing kindness, from the trail angels who opened their homes (let us/me do laundry, shower, and fed/ treated us like family) to others who offered rides to town - this trip has been amazing!!!
