to the buzzing of winged insects
songs of birds swaying
stems and branches
twinkling sunlight bouncing off leaves
Bask in the sun with lizards
Sit with your feet in a rapid
Listen to the gurgling of water
Feel lighter than air
Climb to the top
Smell the sun-warmed sage
and the rainshadow approaching from miles away.
In keeping with our culture at ICI, the IC Imagine Adventure Club is dedicated to getting students outside. Each year, grades K-12 will be participating in one of three seasonal disciplines; hiking, skiing/snowboarding and mountain biking. We will explore the trails of Western North Carolina each fall through a variety of different hikes throughout the area. Winters will find us careening in a generally downhill direction, skiing and snowboarding at Cataloochee Ski Area. We will finish by combining the rigor of hiking and the thrill of downhill skiing/snowboarding as we saddle our mountain bikes and work on developing our mountain bike skills, to prepare our champions for the upcoming National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) Race series.
