We went to hike Chod Akev on Thursday 2/14/19. This is a picture of my friend Maggie and I on our hike at the top of the mountain. This hike was extremely challenging both mentally and physically. Even though I had some trouble, it was one of the most interesting and fun hikes I have been on because it wasn’t just walking but also included some climbing as well. The view at the top was also beautiful and nothing like I have ever seen before. The second day we went on a shorter hike and then went snorkeling. Everything we saw on this trip was not something I can see at home in Washington and I feel so lucky to have experiences like this. After our 7 hour hike, I felt so proud of myself for being able to do something like that. I also had a lot of encouragement from everyone around me and we used a lot of team work to get up the mountain. I would not have been able to do it without the help of my friends. We did not do much learning about history in the tiyul but I enjoyed getting to spend a lot of time with my friends and I am looking forward to further tiyuls like this one. - Danielle
