Dear Trails and Vistas,
"Thank you for a great time. I liked all the stations because they were really fun and inspiring. People were asking me to trade marbles with them but I said no because I feel like the marbles have our dream in them. I feel like they have something about us in them. I really liked the poetry and music because it was inspiring." -Bryn
