This year, during Spring break my family and I ventured to California, the land of Starbucks and In-N-Out Burger. Our trip started out at Sea World, and my younger brother insisted we go to the Shark Encounter exhibit. Once we arrived my parents let my brother
We never drove farther west than Iowa. Going to Wyoming was something my brothers and I were looking forward too. Talking about all the activities we will be doing and places we will be stopping at made us more excited. It got me wishing we were going that day, but I knew we had to wait a couple a weeks. Waiting was the worst part of the trip. I could not focus on anything besides getting ready for the trip. As those long weeks came by we finally were packed to go. It was 4 a.m. and my parents were packing the car and telling us to bring everything out. We decided to take the minivan, so there was plenty of space. My older brother always got the back seats to himself so he had his bags back there with him. My
I`ve been on planes, cars, and many things in my life but I have never been on a cruise, and on this Alaskan Cruise I was able to try new things. In our ship they had swimming pools, ping pong tables, casinos, and a extraordinary ice cream bar. One of my favorite parts of this trip was holding two baby sled dogs that were two weeks old. I also liked kayaking, plus I shared a kayak with my sister, Mia, and I controlled the kayak from the back. After that my family and I went on a bus ride to see caribou, bears, and glaciers. I also went on a hike and float with the Kendal`s (who are my cousins), because there daughter Annie was sleepy. I saw cool trees and fascinating wildlife. I even was allowed to eat berries that tasted like watermelon, but
Alaskan Bush People has been accused of faking things before and now it turns out that Noah Brown allegedly had a fake date on last week's episode. On last Friday's Alaskan Bush People, Noah went on a date with a gorgeous woman. Radar Online has been able to figure out that this woman happens to be an actress and may have not just been someone interested in dating Noah Brown.
During the past summer, I had an experience that changed my life. The experience wasn’t one moment or one day, but rather a whole week with my family and cousins. The reason this trip was so important to me is because I did a lot of things for the first time and it was a great opportunity to explore outside of Minnesota. I really like Montana or any state with mountains, so it was very fun to see and experience all that. But the main reason i’m using this trip for my experience is because I like to think about the future. Going to Montana helped me think about that because I am most likely going to live there or in some state with mountains. It was just extremely fun to think about.
My youth pastor pulled out of our church parking lot at three am in the morning loaded down with a bus full of twenty four teenagers including me. We were off at last head to Colorado Spring Colorado, little did I know, our bus was going to fall apart this very day.
No other place in the world offers the diversity of angling experiences that Washington does, whether it’s you are from the bank or from a boat your chances of catching a salmon is high. Beginning salmon anglers will want to focus on items at the top of the menu bar,while experienced anglers will find many useful tools closer to the bottom of the menu bar. Salmon have been recorded to weigh up to 100 pounds!The 68-year-old Les Anderson, who is part-owner of Peninsula Ford, hooked what is officially a 97 1/4-pounder, but many envious anglers realized the monster might have topped the elusive 100-pound mark when it was fresh out of the water. The biggest recorded king salmon caught by any means in Alaska was a 126-pound fish caught in a trap near Petersburg in 1949. Now the columbia river does get some of these “June Hogs” but nothing like up in the kenai river in alaska. There has been multiple fish caught out of the columbia and its tributaries have pulled out monsters from 65 pounds and
Barrow, Alaska is the United States’ northernmost city on the Arctic Ocean. Barrow is made up of a population of mostly Iñupiat Eskimo native and a fraction of Caucasian and other minority citizens. Point Barrow (n.d.) suggests that “archaeological evidence dates human habitation by Iñupiat Eskimos in the area from about 500 A.D.” The city was named for “Sir John Barrow, British promoter of Arctic exploration; its Iñupiaq name is Ukpeagvik, meaning ‘Place Where Owls Are Hunted’” (Point Barrow, n.d.). With scarce resources available, Iñupiat peoples subsist on the land and sea of north and northwest Alaska. “Construction of the Distant Early Warning (DEW) line and exploration in the National Petroleum Reserve brought new people to the region”
With its direct connection with the land removed, Native Alaskan society began to fragment alarmingly quickly. The regional corporations’ failure to provide dividends that were adequate enough to allow people to remain comfortably in their local villages, coupled with the influx of Western Capitalistic Culture brought by the new corporations, led an increasing number of Native Alaskans to begin moving from their traditional subsistence lifestyles in rural villages to the comparatively urban cities of Alaska. Native populations in Anchorage alone doubled between 1970 and 1980. There, the newly urban Alaska Natives were forced to seek out work in a comparatively individualistic society. The western corporate values of competition eroded
My favorite vacation, so far, is one I went on in September 2015 with my friends Alissa and Jaidah. We all share fandom interests. On the weekend of September 19, my brother went away to spend his birthday with my dad. My mom shook me awake and informed me I could bring two friends along to a room in the Dells that we would be occupying. Almost immediately I thought of the duo. I ran downstairs and texted both of them while packing a bag. They texted back not too long after, and I told them my mom and I would pick them up anywhere from 10-11 that Saturday morning. We picked up Alissa and she tried to direct us to Jaidah’s house, but she wasn’t thorough with her
