Summer Expedition

During the month of June, Hannah Werner, OCHS'23 spent 30 days hiking over 110 miles on a National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) wilderness expedition through the Wind River Range in Wyoming.

Hannah discusses her adventure:
"I set out on the expedition June 6 with a group of ten teenagers and three instructors who were strangers, but soon became my closest friends. We hiked 3 to 14 miles every day, summiting mountains, rock climbing, and learning how to navigate in the backcountry alone. The 30 days on this NOLS course helped me gain confidence, leadership skills and discipline to take on my Junior year at OC."

One of Hannah's new wilderness friends captured moments along the way - watch here!
