Nepal Update

Students Take Home Life Lessons

As we mentioned in a previous blog post, some students from Ellenville High School in New York were given the assignment of reading, Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer.  We were thrilled when they reached out to Mountain Madness and shared some of the essays that the students wrote.  We were impressed with the life lessons that the students took away from the book and ultimately the tragedy that took so many lives back in 1996.  We thought we’d share with you some highlights from the essays we read.
