Fourth graders, from left, Dylan Corson Burnett, Natasha Oster and Elijah Roden, use stretch cords to secure their wagons to one another as they strive to navigate a steep descent along the "Oregon Trail." Although a number of wagons, and numerous provisions, had to be abandoned along the way, all of the pioneers managed to arrive safely back in their classrooms at Dry Hollow Elementary.
