“Onward We Climb” by James Bernzen of @fiuinstagram at @hautesavoie_dep74

Onward we climb. Across the grassy plateau. Through the pines and blueberry bushes. Three hops across the stream. Up the stairs of roots. Getting steeper. Switchbacking up the mountain. Cowbells ringing in the distance. Altitude increasing. Air thinning. Inhale. Exhale. Summit in sight. One last climb before the view of a lifetime.  Rocks disappear. A hill of grass remains. Sun breaks through clouds. View begins to rise. Boom! There it is. Look left. Switzerland. Look right. Italy. France all around. Summit after summit. Humility sets in. Never want to leave. A rumble in the distance. Clouds rolling in. View fading. Time to leave. Flash! Thunder! Rain begins. Heading down now. Into the pines and switchbacks. Rain turns to deluge. Switchbacks into rivers.  Place each step with care. Sliding on mud. Pitter patter. Sting! Deluge turns to hail. Run. Step with care no more. Down to the plateau. White van appears. Hop inside. Tossed left. Tossed right. Climb out. Home.

All posts must start as the following example: “Title of Your Reflection” by Your Name @yourinstagramaccount of @fiuinstagram at @hautesavoie_dep74

SHARING Projects will be posted on a social media public forum, which will enable the host institution to engage student perceptions. This provides students with the opportunity to engage in a community dialogue in regards to their work. This should not impact student perspective or analysis. Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
