What Matters to Parker S.

All of the pictures in this collage are very important to me. They are photos of, my family, wakeboarding, being in the mountains, and the search and rescue team I am a member of.

First, my favorite place in the world; the mountains. I love the mountains whether, it is snowmobiling deep in the backcountry, spending a few nights backpacking in the summer, or snowboarding with my brother. My favorite activity is snowmobiling. In the picture above, you can see me preparing to go snowmobile out into the backcountry. I enjoy snowboarding too. My brother and I drive up to Copper throughout the winter and ski together. It is very fun to challenge myself on runs down the mountain. In the summer I backpack a lot. I really enjoying being in the mountains.

I also love my family. We do everything together. In the spring, we play lacrosse together and in the winter, we sometimes ski together. My family is always there for each other. This summer my family welcomed its sixth member, a fuzzy Golden Retriever girl named Mali. Mali is now almost 4 months old and is a very good dog.

The picture on the bottom left shows me at an event for the search and rescue team I am a member of. I joined the team at the beginning of the summer, but I have already had tons of amazing once in a life time experiences. I have spent two nights out alone in the mountains and learned all about search and rescue techniques/strategies. We are called the Arapahoe Rescue Patrol, and it is the only SAR (search and rescue) team in the world made up of high school students. I have learned a lot and look forward to my time in the Arapahoe Rescue Patrol. There are many things I love in life, but these are just a few.
