Daniel Quinn in his foreword describes what the domino effect is: “a cumulative effect that occurs when one event sets off a chain of similar or related events” (Quinn “Foreword” ix-x). Jack Ewing’s is one successful person who follows the domino effect by creating the Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge.

Aldo Leopold describes the land ethic as the “simply enlarges [of ] the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants, and animals” (Leopold, “Land” 239).
1. “The Organic Machine” Richard White’s The Organic Machine offers the perspective that humans are not impeding on or destroying nature, but are working in tandem with nature. White uses the argument of the Colombia River as an “organic machine” designed by nature because it can create energy, support labor, and it can additionally serve as a resource for humans. Humans should look to understand and incorporate the power and capability of the river and nature into their work as labor can be used as a force to unite humans and nature. By utilizing the stories of the Indians and settlers along the Columbia River, we are able to see how nature and humans are able to work together to benefit each other.

Some things you experience in life stick with you for a long time. A family trip I took to Durango, Colorado was one of those experiences for me.

Durango Colorado has some of the most enjoyable surroundings I've ever experienced.

In the story he talks about how strange it is that you can remember a lot whenever you allow your mind to go back to that state. He then goes on to talk about the lake and how it was cool and motionless. This happens all the time in my life, when I was younger my grandparents would take me to Lake Michigan everytime we went to see them. I am able to think about all the sandcastles we would build and the pretty sunset we would see as the day was winding down. It brought back lots of memories visiting them and being able to spend that time with them.

Three years ago in July, my family was surprised with a vacation to Frisco, Colorado. It was my first time seeing mountains, and I was not disappointed. Ever since we returned, I have been in love with the towering rocky formations that unfortunately do not exist along the coastline of Florida.

There happens to be something about the glittering aspens and white stone coating the mountainsides of Colorado that I love.
