Our trip began on thursday afternoon with the cold wind in the air. All of the class pile into our transport bus ready to take us away to downtown Elverson. As soon as we are off the bus we take some pictures. Shortly after we thought we might as well try the cuisine that Elverson had to offer. After a tasty burger we trekked on to finish out the day taking pictures of the local park.
