  1. Overview

  2. Items needed and preparation (you have to make some things yourself)

  3. Taking the pictures (the process and camera settings)

  4. Editing 

  5. FAQ (everything I forgot to mention on the other pages)

As my friends love to point out, I make an Excel document for everything.  One fun excel chart that I started making is what I call a "progress bar" chart.  It displays a progress bar for the current semester (or summer), along with some important events.  You could also call it a timeline with a progress bar.  I've posted pictures below about it, but you can download the file at the link below.  I recommend opening it in Microsoft Excel on a c...

I went to Whitewater Falls with my friend Sophia! The view here was pretty far from the falls but you could see a lot.  We went down into the valley to try to get under the base of the falls, but you could only get about a hundred yards away until rocks and trees and the river stopped you.  Also there is a trail that goes above the falls, we went on it which was cool but scary.  Fun trip, but not the best.
