Way back when life seemed normal, 7th graders participated in what would turn out to be their last Experiential Education trip of the year. While half of the Red Chile Pod went camping, the other half of the pod went on Urban Adventures all throughout New Mexico. Here are some photos from those day trips! (All photos by Eliette Varley ’25, except where noted.)
