The North Star Project, 2013-2014 Report Number Forty-One, “Well, which America? There are many Americas.”, by Megan Hennen

Stepping off the train I was greeted by a sky littered with the parachutes of para-gliders and skydivers, looking up in the trees of the wooded area, there was an entanglement of ropes creating the intricate web of the Seilpark, and just walking down the street, people were seen prepping for a variety of other adrenaline-fueled sports such as whitewater rafting or glacier trekking. All of these thrilling pastimes unfolding before my eyes were contending with the overwhelming 360-degree view of the majestic Alps encompassing the town and the aquamarine waters of the lakes and river.
