Janesville teen spends time in Australia
Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014 — From snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef to touring the Sydney Opera House, one Janesville teenager got to participate in an adventure-filled trip to Australia this summer.
“It was amazing. So much fun, we got to do so many new things and meeting new people. It was a great learning experience, and I would recommend anyone who can, do this trip,” said eighth-grader Gracie Claypool who was selected to represent Lassen County as a People-to-People Ambassador.
She traveled with a group of 42 of her peers and their action-packed itinerary included attending school with the students, visiting a working cattle station, rappelling off a 90-foot cliff, visiting the Capricorn Caves traveling through the rain forest on the Skyrail Rain Forest Cableway.
