Today we are all flying to our homes across the country. As we travel, we would like to share some thoughts about our experiences in Montana.
Amelia: Montana is great. But this is all I can say: Go to it!
Arabella: If it was up to me, I would stay right up until school started. I liked the water rafting the best!
Ben: It was really fun meeting everybody, and it was just amazing seeing everything and being with people that love exploring as much as I do.
Caitlin: Going on this Montana expedition was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. My favorite part of the expedition was discovering dinosaur bones and seeing mountain goats.
Dillian: It was so beautiful words can’t describe it.
Edward: It was so awesome to come here and see the animals that I could not see where I live.
Ellie: Montana could very well be the most beautiful place on Earth. From the exotic wildlife to the dramatic landscapes, it gives me a good reason to see America first.
Emily: Throughout this trip, I’ve experienced many things, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I never want to leave.
Hannah: The trip was really amazing. We all got along so well because we all enjoyed every aspect of the trip.
Jackson: I really liked learning about the different edible plants that you can find in the wilderness.
Jordan: It was amazing. I learned so much about wildlife and different things I thought I would never learn about.
Lena: It was awesome! My favorite part was seeing the two different kinds of bears. I will miss everyone, but I’m looking forward to the D.C. reunion!
Katherine: Majestic mountains and powerful rivers made this a trip of a lifetime. I’ve loved every minute of it! Thanks, NG Kids!
Mariah: I’m gonna miss everybody!
Michael:The trip was amazing. It was the journey of a lifetime.
We’ve arrived in Great Falls, Montana! Fourteen of us want to share our first impressions of our trip. Dillian is on a late flight, so he will join us later tonight.
Hi, I’m Benjamin. As soon as we all got up this morning, we boarded a bus to go to breakfast. We went to the Rainforest Habitat wildlife park, where we got to hold some pretty cool rain forest animals, like the carpet python, tree frog, parakeet, and crocodile. We learned a little bit about each of the animals too. For example we learned that the python could grow to be several feet long. The one I held was about four feet long.
Afterward we ate breakfast with the birds. The birds were flying around, swiping our food and drinking our juice, and sitting on our heads and shoulders. One even peed on my shoulder! It was all great–even the pee.
