Bus B began their day at sunrise in the gorgeous Grand Canyon. For shacharit, they each found a spot to daven alone with the beautiful scenery surrounding them. Later on, it was time for a hike and the Grand Canyon Imax. Then, they broke up into sichot for learning session and then practiced on their tefillah goals to finish up the day. On top of an already amazing day and night, they concluded the evening by stargazing and being amazed at the nature that surrounded them.

Bus B began their day with a shacharit service that allowed their creative juices to flow. They made art projects to demonstrate the Ashrei and shared their projects with the rest of the group later on during mincha. Through their travel from Amarillo to Albuquerque, they stopped at Cadillac Ranch, an awesome site on Route 66 where old Cadillac’s are buried into the ground and covered in decades worth of spray paint. The wheelniks had to opportunity to make their mark on the cars as well. When they reached Albuquerque, they spent time at Old Town Albuquerque to shop around and take pictures. In the evening, they went to the Hinkle Family Fun Center. The name really describes the place well because it’s filled endless activities for the kids to participate in. What an awesome day for Bus B!

It was a great Monday for Bus B in Amarillo, TX! In the morning, they davened shacharit and learned more blessings in the Amidah. Also, it was Rosh Hodesh, so the group learned a little bit about what that is and about, ya’aleh viyavo, the words you say to welcome the New Month prayer in the Amidah. After eating breakfast and making lunches, the group headed to the Route 66 Museum and then channeled their inner adventurous selves for the Amarillo Jeep Tours. They got to experience Texas’ beautiful scenery and cliffs while sitting back in the comfortable Jeeps! Later in the evening, the group did laundry and had didactic encounters to get to know each other even better than they already do. Yeehaw!

After having a wonderful Shabbat together, Bus B’s Monday began with shacharit and learning more blessings in the Amidah. Then, the group was on their way to Oklahoma City! The Wheelniks had an amazing opportunity to take a chronological and interactive tour of the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial and learn all about what happened on April 19, 2005. Following this memorable visit was a delicious dinner and evening program consisting of improv games and gender bonding Indian-Chief playing. Everyone went to bed early to get ready for Amarillo in the morning!
