Every two years I take high school students to the backcountry of Alaska's Glacier Bay as part of an environmental writing class that I teach. I'm excited to have this piece about one of those trips up on the website of one of my favorite companies, Territory Run Company. (Full disclosure: I'm an athlete ambassador for Territory). The piece is all about how time in wild places brings out the best in kids, both in the short term and in the long term. Enjoy!
