    across the rickety wooden bridge, I inhaled a deep breath of refreshingly crisp mountain air. The sun beat down on me as I made my way across the bridge and back onto the well-used hiking trail. The ambient sounds of chirping birds, babbling water, and the croaks of several frogs filled my ears as I made my way around the bend. As I entered the mouth of the forest, I could see my father standing in the middle of the path, glancing upwards, taking in the beauty that had began to engulf us. “We better get

    If I had, like Ferris Bueller, a day off I would make my experience an envy of all by going hiking, sight seeing, and yoga in the mountains. I would go hiking because it's something that I want to do, but with my spring and summer schedule don't have time for. Going hiking would make it a day for other people to envy because it's an environment that doesn't create stress or conjure up worries.

    When I was 14 my brother convinced me to sign up for the Mcconnel foundation Yosemite trip.

I got accepted and it was definitely one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. I’m outdoorsy and love hiking but, this was a whole different level of hiking.

    My first experience with nature was hiking at Monrovia Canyon Park. I’ve never really been too fond of nature, mainly for the unsanitary conditions and my fear of vicious animals. I honestly never went hiking because unlike some of my friends, I never felt the need to be near nature and I never understood the beauty that everyone saw in it; I always had more of a negativistic approach towards the environment. In the end, I was surprised to actually enjoy the short three mile hike. I hiked alone with

    When I was 14 years old, my dad and I went rock climbing in the mountains with a friend and his son. It was the first time I had been rocking climbing anywhere outdoor. We had to hike in to the point where we could start climbing. We got to the top of the mountain and it was beautiful! On the hike down, my dad slipped in the snow and slid down the mountain. He hit a pile of rocks and broke his leg. I, being 14 and completely inexperienced, had to run down the mountain as fast as I could, while connected

The photo essay, the memoir, the film review and the editorial all appeal to pathos more than the others. The instructional essay appealed to logos. The editorial and the instructional essay also contain pieces of ethos. Also the photo essay gives the entire project an appeal to ethos because it shows that I’ve actually been on many mountains and that helps with what I say in my other pieces. Photo Essay:

    Hiking Up Johnson’s Peak Have you ever been to the best camp EVER, which is obviously CGS? Well, if you haven’t you have to go, especially if you like nature! My favorite part was hiking up Johnson’s Peak. The naturalists that went with us were very nice, and they knew every single answer to every single question someone had. Additionally, when we looked for fossils if we couldn’t find any they helped us find some. Their names were Carolyn, Joelle, and Scott. When we were hiking up Johnson’s Peak
