Because Fort Lewis College is a liberal arts school, all students are required to take a variety of classes in almost every subject. One of the classes needed in order to graduate is physical education. Each student needs one credit of PE, which means that you need to take at least one PE class while attending Fort Lewis. My schedule this semester was busy and I couldn’t seem to find much time between working and classes to add a PE class. I knew that I had to get it done in order for me to graduate next year so I sat down with my advisor and read through all of the PE classes available this semester. One really stood out to me: Camping and Backpacking.

During my Junior and Senior years of high school, as I started looking for colleges, I wanted to find a school where I would never be bored and could always find something exciting to do. Durango is probably the most exciting and challenging place to explore that I have come across. Year-round, there are all sorts of different adventures to embark on. I’ll try to explain at least some of what I have come to love doing in Durango.

I love the outdoors, but I am not that experienced at camping. Therefore, I was very excited to find out about Outdoor Pursuits, or OP, as it is known around campus. OP is a co-op kind of place; once you pay the fee you can rent equipment (for no additional charge) and use their rock wall. They have all the equipment one needs for camping, kayaking, biking, and many other things.
