Day 25 of the course was our Solo day. Solo is where participants spend 24 hours alone with their thoughts and for us it was near Tuolumne Peak. We had a beautiful view of Yosemite’s mountains, with sunrises and sunsets perfect for your PC background. Solo itself was a very enlightening and reflective experience which was apparent when we reunited. Meeting back together we realized how fun it is to talk and be together as a team. An example of this shined brightly when we created our new group norms POHTE which stands for Patience, Optimism, Honesty, Teamwork, and Empathy. These are the things our team decided would help everyone be their best self within the group.
