Mount Student group in Belize with Mount flag

The Mount's adventure to Belize was one that involved much traveling. It all started in lower McGowan. As everyone one was arriving we all greeted each other with anticipation for our adventure. Our first trip was to Dulles, where there were very sleepy people on a 2-hour car ride to the Airport. Once we made it to Dulles, we had to go through security, and then got on the plane to Miami. For most of the group, this plane ride was one of many in their previous travels; for one, it was a first-time experience ... I am that one!

My first plane ride, for me, was exciting, and everyone was very supportive. It was a new experience that will lead to many more trips. Once we got off the plane, our excitement reached a much higher level; we were so close to Belize!

The plane from Miami to Belize took a little over an hour, and everyone was pumped. The nice warm weather welcomed us with palm trees surrounding the airport. Then, Jeff picked up our rental van and we were off to the Cockscomb Wildlife Basin, where we would be spending our first part of the trip....Click here to read more.
