    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

A I N L [ 1 ]

Today, I returned from a seven day and six night sea kayaking trip in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore [AINL]. I, along with three other guides from The College of St. Scholastica’s Outdoor Pursuit program, led a group of 12 boy scouts and their five chaperones for the week. We explored Sand Island to begin and ended up being stranded there for an extra day and night due to unfavorable and dangerous travel conditions. Lake Superior is indeed the boss, and she made it very clear that we would not be traveling Wednesday, the day we planned to paddle from Sand Island to Oak Island. Although the weather prevented us from making it to four out of the five islands we planned on visiting, we created the opportunity for these 17 individuals to step out of their comfort zone, experience something new, explore new territory, and to return to the mainland safely and in one piece. They were grateful for our care, generosity, and leadership, and I, in return, was grateful for their patience, flexibility, and passion. I am so very glad I had the opportunity to lead such an extraordinary group of people. I can only hope they enjoyed the week as much as I did.
