Mabel-Canton High School senior class trip highlights

Day 1: April 6

By Hannah Nolte and Devin Nelson

Mabel Canton High School’s senior class woke up much earlier than the rest of the world on Monday, April 6, right after Easter. We were supposed to be in the gym by four in the morning to get our bags checked before the trip. Once our bags were checked, they were loaded on the luxury motor coach from Hawkeye Stages. We were all very excited to leave for the best trip of our lives, as they say. We took pictures and said goodbye to our parents and loved ones. We were going to be gone for nine days to explore our history. The bus left at 4:30, and we were off.

We slept for a while until Mr. Wyffels, our tour guide for the trip, woke us up. The first stop would be in Chicago at Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower. We got our tickets to the sky deck. The sky deck is on floor 103 of the building. There are glass ledges sticking out of the building allowing us to see in almost any direction, including down. You could almost see the whole city of Chicago at once.

After the sky deck we joined a tour of the major attractions in Chicago given by our tour guide. He pointed out all the important buildings and tourist attractions. We even got to get out at Millenium Park and see the cloud sculpture, along with many others and the rest of the park. Our last stop was at Lake Michigan to take pictures and see the city from the shore. Then we were back on the road again.

Our next stop was Notre Dame University. As we pulled in, we saw the football stadium and a huge mural of Touchdown Jesus, which most of us thought was pretty cool. We then got off the bus and toured the sports center. We saw the pool, basketball court, and athletic awards hall among other things. The awards hall was very impressive and had the names of everyone who had ever lettered at the university. After this tour we were ready for a hotel and some fun time.

Our first hotel was in Maumee, Ohio, right outside of Toledo. We unloaded the bus, got our room keys and rushed up the stairs. We changed into our swimsuits in probably record time, and the whole class went swimming together. After swimming we all ate pizza together and settled into the rooms to continue the fun.
