Nestled snuggly into the Blue Ridge Mountains was Ridgecrest, North Carolina. Getting there was no joke seeing as the ears popped every five minutes, but the scenery was beautiful. Ridgecrest itself was quite a sight to behold as well with its serene backdrop. Hotels and cabins were arranged neatly across the campus giving the environment a spacey feel. Ridgecrest, North Carolina is an amazing place to spend a productive weekend, with many fun activities to do. Quickly the tall buildings and bright lights fade away and start to meld with nature giving way for the tall, thick trees that lined the side of the highway. The signs, which were big and green in color, was suspended above. Directing our way, the signs stated the gas stations that appeared almost every two exits, assisting us greatly. Overhead were bridges that crisscrossed this way and that as if it were shielding the drivers down below. Traffic, which was little to none did not hinder our passage to Ridgecrest. Occasionally a car passed by racing towards some sort of imaginary finish line Diving up a mountain can be quite frustrating especially when getting to certain altitudes the ears start to pop. It is the …show more content…
There was another complex across the road which seemed to look over every few minute. Meeting into the center was a trial that led right back to the lobby. Walking past the lobby towards the more dense area of the center was a branched off arm of the trail leading to the recreation center, trails, gym, and lake. The center was huge filled with soccer balls, basketballs, and volleyballs. Father up ahead was the lake whose essence was magnificent. The lake bordered on all sides by trees shone brightly as the sun reflected of its surface. Birds and squirrels could be heard scurrying around and talking to one another, allowing a placid feeling to govern the

Tennessee is by far my most memorable place. This place is far from my little town “the watta,” and getting there is a long ride. One can take a plane or drive all the way there but whichever you choose when you arrive it’s like going to paradise. The feeling of arriving you get is irreplaceable. Viewing the mountains from far is truly a peaceful place. It is filled with so much nature, it reminds us of how beautiful this world truly is with it.

In Atlanta I would like to see Stone Mountain, Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, The Varsity, and Tech Tower at Georgia Tech. Stone Mountain is the large mass of granite located about 15 miles east of downtown Atlanta is probably the area's most popular landmark. It's hard to miss the 1,686 feet rounded rock that is often referred to in many reference books as "the largest exposed piece of granite in the world. The Martin
Is it accurate to say that you are suffocating yourself in weariness? Is it true that you are needing to run some place with companions or family for excursion? Than I have the spot for you, Crowley 's Ridge. Even though some offer confidence to, Crowley 's Ridge not being a charming spot for an excursion it is my charge that Crowley 's Ridge is the most pleasant traveling spot due to its progressive history, significant towns and attractions, remarkable highlights, atmosphere, and unmistakable biological system.
April 30: Today was the first day we spent at the world's most visited national park, The Great Smoky Mountains. We got here at 7:00 AM. The Great Smoky Mountains are located between North Carolina and Tennessee. According to my research that I did before we came, The Great Smoky Mountains have many things like Black Bears, Cades Cove, lots of flowers, and many things things to do. We haven't done anything yet but we will start everything tomorrow. We are gonna stay for 5 days.
This the north side of Zion National Park. It was so worth the visit. There also weren't very many people there, so I was nice not to have our view of the beautiful landscape blocked. Kolobo Canyons feature amazing sandstone cliffs. They colors of the rocks are stunning! Most of Kolobo Canyons you drive through, but there are a few hikes. We did the hike at the end of the driving route. It was a one-mile round trip. It featured a slight elevation change, when you come from the Mississippi Delta region of the south a slight elevation change of a few hundred feet is a lot. They also have a longer hike that goes back to the largest free-standing arch in the world. This is a 14.4 mile round trip hike, and the National Park Service does not recommend
It was an impulsive decision, but I thought it would be nice to hang out with more people than usual. The deal was to go to a small hill in Royal Park to enjoy the sunset, but we found the view covered by the dauntless Royal Melbourne Hospital. Everything was still quite bright even though it was 6 pm. I didn't want to go back home so I retraced my steps. A short walk from the hill was the large circular grassy field that we had passed on our journey. Surrounding the field on the outer edges were countless amounts of trees. I noticed that there were still people walking around the field. Although they were far away, I could distinguish them from the surroundings due to how bright the field was. I found it interesting that the photoreceptors

As we just arrived in Washington my legs felt uncomfortable once I up from waiting for a joyful time. I’ve been lingering all day for this moment, a tremendous time with my friends and spend time with my mother. I was curious, the colorful amazement of the city. It was the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen. My group reunited around me like I was a king. My group contained two of my friends. Priscilla, and David were both in the group, so was my mother. We trotted to the bench seats to eat our lunch, hundreds of people gathered around without a bench. We were lucky to get a seat. We ate our delicious, tasty lunch. Which consumed of a bag of Doritos, Lunchable, a Coke, and Takis. Birds were flying around us, like a tornado trying to steal our scrumptious, delicious food. After we ate our lunch, we met up with Jacob’s group.

I was a little nervous about the wind as we climbed into the cockpit and did our preflight checks. I explained to Trevor that I have been in small airplanes before but not in this much wind. I wasn’t expecting him to actually let me take off and take over controls, but it wasn’t nearly as terrifying as I thought it would be. I was surprised on how smooth the flight was once we climbed to about 4000 feet and basically had no turbulence. After some conversation, Trevor and I both loved to fish in the area, so we aimed towards the 81 ponds and actually flew over Lake Thompson and talked about fishing most of the flight.
I find my true self in nature surrounded by trees, rocks, water and the captivating peaceful sounds. While growing up in Asheville, North Carolina, I spent most of my time climbing trees, riding bikes, and hiking through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Living nearly ten minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway was an experience I will never forget. Being surrounded by nature is my therapy and my home; I visit the mountains on occasion and it never gets old seeing the breathtaking landscape I grew up on.
Literature indulges us in a different world by using descriptive writing that paints a vivid picture in our mind. Every author has a different way to accomplish that, but the main purpose is to draw the reader into the desired place and time of the literature. I will compare two poems and one story that capture the imagination by a descriptive writing. First we will take a closer look how these authors accomplished their transition of us into their world and then we will compare if those works have something in common.
The young lady whose name you find out to be Areum hands you a towel as you walk into your office. You wipe your shoes off and pant legs. You settle yourself in the big space. You layout your phone, notebook, and glasses on the desk. You slip your glasses on and start writing down some important information about the company when you hear a knock on the door. You look up to see Seungcheol standing there. You nod and he enters your office. Seungcheol takes a seat across from you as you continue to write. You heart is beating out of your chest and frankly this might have been the most awkward situation you 've been in since that day. “So you look very different” Seungcheol states. “Don 't think i changed because or for you.” You scoff. And he shrinks back into his chair. You take off your glasses and pour the notebook to the side. “Seungcheol when i moved to new york you see i met new people and i changed because of their influence and my interests changed from studying business to studying fashion. That 's my story of the last few years.” You say laying your hands in your lap. “Well after i graduated high school i went on to college made so stupid decisions and graduated with a degree in business and now i 'm here.” He says with a srug. I live a normal life unlike you.” HE say as he points to you. “Seungcheol let 's just forget about each other.” You say as you stand up. “How can i forget about you when i loved you all this time even when we were back in school i love you.”
One rainy evening Kal was walking home from work when it started to boom thunder and lightning. Frightened he ran to the nearest shelter, a canopy hung over a dumpster.
