Deep In The Rain Forest…

Getting to the Tiputini Biodiversity Station was an experience all on its own. It took us 12 hours of traveling to make it to the station. We left our homes in Quito at 4:30 A.M. and arrived at the station at 4:30 P.M. We flew, walked, rode in cars and boats all the while getting farther and farther from towns. The next day we had the opportunity to explore the rain forest for a little bit. They took us to the canopy walk and on some trails and these is just a tiny snapshot of what we saw.

I was born and raised in a suburb just outside of Chicago. When I started looking at colleges I looked for places far away and very different from where I grew up and University of Wyoming fit the bill. I have a passion for learning and exploring. My trip to Ecuador will allow me to explore and learn and I can&#39;t wait to share this experience will all of you.</span></p>
