The Baja camping trip was phenomenal. This was a different experience for all of us because of the fact that is was on an island next to the Baja peninsula. When we got there the first thing we did was measure two turtles and name them. A big part of this trip is about conservation, so I was really excited to be a part of this effort. The information we gathered is really useful to people who are in charge of conservation efforts for aquatic animals. The whole camping trip was very unique for one reason: the sand. Our guides warned us not to get frustrated with the sand, but that would not stop it from getting everywhere. The camping trip, however, was not ruined at all. We went on so many extravagant activities while we were there. One day we went to a different part of the island, where it was basically like a desert, and we had so much fun jumping off sand dunes and seeing who could go the farthest. Another interesting part of this trip was going whale watching. Our captains were so amazing at finding whales and getting close to them. They were so close that everyone got to pet the whales in the water. It was so crazy spectating the whales rise up right under you and shove its nose against the boat. This was probably my favorite aspect of the camping trip because it is really eye opening coming in contact with such gigantic creatures. I really enjoyed this camping trip, and it was truly worth the hours on the bus to get there.
