Day 2 - Itinerary (Description by Mitch, Photography by Mollie)
We gathered in the computer lab on Tuesday morning to edit our blog and analyze what we did on the previous day. After making a playlist of environmental music, writing up a description of day one, and making a short but sweet video of our story-worthy cross-country skiing experience and out chat with Bill McKibben, we drove to Middlebury college to talk and write with professor John Elder. When we arrived, Prof. Elder told us to write for 6-7 minutes about our surroundings and then a follow up discussion of what we wrote. We then went inside the library and wrote about a life experience involving nature. Prof. Elder gave us many tips on how to write well and how he himself became a writer.
