On an early February morning, 18 students, staff and affiliates of Fern Creek High School met at Louisville International Airport to embark on a journey to Tsaile, Arizona. We spent all day sitting in airports and on planes, all anticipating seeing the Navajo Nation for the first time. A short stop at Navajo Technical College for dinner and a tour of the campus’ kitchen and computer engineering school capped off the day. We stopped in Window Rock for the night. Although many were tired by the end of the day of travel, all were looking forward to the opportunities awaiting them only a short bus ride away. Students of the Trip: What were some of the things going through your head/ expectations for the trip during travel?
