LATINUM ITER MONTANUM … WYOMINGENSE

My friend Prof. Nancy Llewellyn of Wyoming Catholic College sent the following:

Since you’re a fan of Wyoming and a strenuissimus fautor of Latin, I thought you might be interested to know that the Latin Program here at WCC has taken a big step forward with the successful conclusion last Saturday of our first-ever Latin Immersion Outdoor Weekend.  Nine students and four faculty spent four days backpacking through a portion of the Bridger-Teton National Forest in central Wyoming, in a trek that included a climb to the spectacular summit of East Temple Mountain.  All participants spoke only Latin for the entire duration of the trip.  I’ve included a few photos illustrating our experience.

All cordial greetings to you, Father.
Nancy Llewellyn

Omnia vobis quaeque optima exopto omnibus!

Very cool!

And since this was in WYOMING I will put in a shameless plug for Mystic Monk Coffee because they are in Wyoming.  They are in a different part of Wyoming, but they are there.

So, refresh your coffee or tea supply now.

But… a couple shots from the Latin fun in the mountains of Wyoming.  This is what students get to do there!

    I am very happy that such a college even exists. My son and his family live west of Lander and are teachers. They have five children. It will be several years before any of them are old enough for college but what a bonus for a parent to know that such a school exists just an hour from their home.
    Praise God.

    If I’m not mistaken, that’s where Dr. Peter Kwasniewski teaches theology and philosophy. He’s a frequent writer for the Latin Mass Magazine.

    May WCC’s tribe increase.
