Survive the spider

"Bonneville Elementary School second-grader Blain Gustaveson reacts after an Orem High School student found a spider during the annual Elementary Education Day at South Fork Park, Thursday morning. Orem High students in the unified studies program taught second graders from two Orem elementary schools about nature related skills."

Headed up Provo canyon last week to shoot some frames of children being mixed with high school students. The latter were teaching the skills needed to survive in the wilderness.

I thought it would be a lot like Bear Grylls type stuff, but I was wrong.

Most of the kids were being little pains. Many of the high school students had to take them to their real teachers after acting up.

After shooting for 45 minutes, I had to leave. I was not too happy with my take, so I was searching for one more moment.

Much to my dismay, I didn't find anything, so I started heading for the car. But then I heard screaming.

I sprinted over and realized an Orem high student found a huge spider. I have no clue what kind it was, but it looked poisonous. I stuck my camera in and fired some frames hoping to catch one of the kids over reactions to the spider.

The funny thing is, I was making the same face. I am just glad no one got a picture of me!
