Summer 2021: MCS Memories


Summer 2021: MCS Memories

Lisa: It’ been a fabby summer — from river floats with fam & friends, to visiting Steve’s parents in the Black Hills.

But our trip to Napa Valley wine country takes the cake — definitely a bucket list item — with the highlight being an old-fashioned train tour making several vineyard stops, up and down the valley.

Steve: A 4-day mountain biking trip to Oregon over Memorial Day kicked off the summer on a high note for me. Insider intel on locals-only trails kept us in the sweet spots and out of the crowds.

Dave: Our summer highlight was a week-long trip to Connecticut for a college friends’ reunion. It was our first trip to the East coast, and the first time I’ve dipped my feet in the Atlantic Ocean. 11/10 would go again.

Stephanie: We had a lot of plans this summer. It was very go-go-go for us. I think my favorite was camping in Island Park. It was the most relaxing part of the summer.

Matt: My favorite memory from this summer was when my family went camping at Crescent Lake in Oregon. We went hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, paddle boarding, and even climbed a waterfall. The experience was amazing other than the sunburns and mosquito bites.

Jordynn: My favorite memory from this summer was visiting Dreamscapes Art Exhibit in Salt Lake City, which is Utah’s first environmentally sustainable exhibit featuring pieces created from reclaimed materials. Walking through the exhibit truly felt like a dream.

Kayla: One of the many favorite memories this summer was having my high school friends come to visit from Minnesota. We took the long weekend to travel to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, their first time visiting. It was great seeing them and being able to catch up!

Nick: My favorite trip and part of this summer was visiting my friends in Portland. We went to the ocean, Multnomah Falls, hiked around Portland and went and found a lot of great restaurants and antique stores. It definitely was a trip that recharged my batteries for my final semester at Idaho State!
