8: The Hanapepe Swinging Bridge is a foot suspension bridge that crosses over the Hanapepe River and links the old town of Hanapepe in Kauai County. The wooden bridge was originally built in the early 1900’s as the only way for locals to cross the river. The rickety and swaying bridge have since became a popular tourist landmark in the area. In 1992, the Hanapepe Swinging Bridge was badly damaged by Hurricane Iniki, touted as the most powerful hurricane to strike Hawaii in recorded history. The bridge was restored and reinforced with cables and wooden planks, making it more stable and less swing-y. The bridge is still used by taro farmers and locals who need to cross the river, as well as, becoming a popular tourist landmark.

I used to spend hrs playing with shy grass, or exploring i sure loved exploring and imagining. always was afraid of the antennas because you could get fried when on & sometimes you could hear the AWR station when out in the fuilds.

44: Mount Lamlam (meaning lightning in Chamorro), located in the southwestern village of Agat, is the highest peak on Guam. Though Mount Lamlam is only 1,332 feet high, the distance from the peak to the bottom of the nearby Mariana Trench is perhaps the greatest change in elevation on Earth over such a short distance. The Marianas Trench reaches a maximum known depth of 6.78 miles. If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth at 29,040 feet, was set in the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, there would be 6,760 feet of water left above it.

51: Fort Nuestra Senora de la Soledad. Fort Nuestra Senora de la Soledad was one of the last Spanish Forts constructed in the 19th Century in support of the Spanish Galleon trade. Sitting on the cliff just to the South of Umatac, Fort Soledad has a commanding view of the Bay and all Ocean approaches. The Fort was restored in 1995 and today the cannon of Fort Soledad still point out over the Pacific Ocean and Umatac Bay where Magellan landed in 1521 to make the first contact between Guam and the West. | Fort Santa Agueda. Constructed in 1800, Fort Santa Agueda occupied a commanding position overlooking Hagatna Bay and the city of Hagatna. The cannon of Fort Agueda served to protect Hagatna harbor and the lucrative Galleon trade until the Spanish American War when in 1898 when an American frigate entered Hagatna harbor with guns blazing. Hagatna was surrendered the next day. Today the old Spanish cannon still point out over Hagatna Bay from the remnants of Fort Santo Agueda located in Hagatna Heights adjacent to the Governor's residence.

98: Arizona Mission trip March 18=27 Bethany C. Thursday: we left Gem State Academy at 8:30 with 4 boys, 10 girls, and 7 adults wear we rode in 5 different cars about 4 in each car. We then drove to Utah and Stopped at a SDA Church Wear we spent the night. Friday: we went to four Corners, wear my wish of being in 2 places at once came true plus doubled. We then drove 2 hours until we got to the Kinclichee church. Wear we all moved in. The girls got the sanctuary wear we tock 2 pews and made them into are little beds. The boys got the office, the men got the sabbath school room, and the women got the nursery. We had to wait for supplies so we tore out the tile in the entrance of the church and in the kitchen as much as we could with our hands, which wasnt to hard since the floor was moldy. Then Pastor Bryson took the kids who wanted to go on a hike outside of the fenced in area around the church and hiked down into a canyon. When you look out all you see is red flat land. But if you hike a little ways there are canyons and down in the canyons its very pretty with with lots of green grass and trees. Finely when we got back the supplies were there so we unloaded it all. Since it was close to sunset so we just hung out after that. Most of us spent from 4:30-7:30 playing running games outside. the next day outr legs were so sore and hurt to sit or get up. Saturday: We went to Church in the next town. Then we went on a hike to Camel Rock. Instead of following the trail some of us decided to clime the rocks. When we finally found a place to get down we were not far away from where we were supposed to be before you head up to the camel rock. I didnt go up since I had been there before so I stayed with Jessica who wasnt feeling well. Instead of up the camel rock that was on your left we went to our right and climbed rocks until we found a nice place to sit andstayed there and watched the people climb to camel rock. Some were able to figure out how to get on top of camels hump. Wich none of us tried latst time. After that we came back and played card games from 4:30-7:30. Sunday: i helped tear down the upper part of the siding on one side of the church, cut the bottom half of the siding using a jigsaw, tore off the lower half of the siding and put on new siding. After that went inside and cleaned up after the people putting in tile and then put in tile on one half of the kitchen
