Sun Shines Everywhere 7984

In the spring, Bay Farm Middle School seventh graders spent three days hiking, camping and learning about the Yosemite Valley ecosystem, and brought the Alameda Sun along for the trip. Students took day-long hikes that challenged them physically, mentally and socially. They encountered bear, deer, crashing waterfalls and the Merced River at flood stage. The trip was organized by teachers Jamie Diaz-Yates and Stacey Fong, with help from parent chaperones and the Bay Farm PTA.
