The First Ascent

My movie is about the first person to hike Mt. Logan. It tells facts about the mountain people who climbed it.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I think the most interesting thing I learned was that the mountain was named after Sir William Edmond Logan.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I have learned that with determination you can do any thing that you set your mind to it, just like how they never gave up on hiking Mt. Logan. they powered through it and completed their journey.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I think they we are both adventurous and seeking adventure. But there are a few differences; they could not get a ride to the base camp and we could get a helicopter ride. Back then they had no contact to the outside world so if something happened they could not do any thing about it.
