Today dawned beautifully! I work up at 5am- 7am back on the farm, and walked outside to feel the crisp mountain air. It was a much better start than yesterday; rising at 3am to rush to the tiny airport and then a full day of travel and waiting at the Denver airport for the other teachers to arrive so we could make the long drive up to Silverthorne. I have a receding headache from the change in altitude, but other than that, I have enjoyed being outside. So far I have walked about 5 miles just taking in the sights. I cannot thank Duke Energy and the Public Education Foundation of MArion County enough for choosing me to represent them at this summer training. It is going to be AWESOME!
