He had to dig his way up through the snow just to get out. When I pictured his shelter in my head it was a decent size tree and the door was a pretty big door. So when he got snowed in it made me think maybe his door was low to the ground or maybe the snow was just really high. Visualize: When I read the part in the book where it first mentions the Catskill Mountains I just picture what they looked like from a distance. When I pictured them I pictured the mountains that are around us except high and bigger.
One of his images, Monolith, the Face of Half Dome (Figure 3), is one of his most famous images which uses the sublime. This image is a high contrast image created using a red filter to create the darker areas in the sky and cliff face. To take this image Adams had to climb 4000 feet to an overhanging rock where he could get this shot. It is seen as a sublime image because it gives the viewer feelings of magnitude, intimidation and power from the sheer mass and size of the granite cliff. The tonality of this image also gives it a sublime look as the dark tones of the sky and cliff connote fear and power.
You might suspect me to ponder imaginatively to the story about the extinction of the dinosaurs. I am wondering, if our time can be reverted to the past million years ago, I really would like to explore the world of the dinosaurs to find out the hidden facts about them. Nevertheless, in reality, the time cannot be reverted. But, one fact is clear that my mind has reverted to the era of the dinosaurs when this article was written. The exploration that I ventured through the different “mind-space” was indeed intoxicating!
It is more like a walking path, but I can see tire tracks on the lightly dirt road. The moment is very tranquil except for the sounds of birds singing, insects shrieking and mosquitoes buzzing. The mosquitoes are a real nuisance. There must be hundreds of them so there’s no point of striking them from left to right over and over again. The area seems to be vacant with no sight of human existence around.

This tree represents her next step to maturity; however, the journey is never easy. The oak tree is first to be climbed, and the tree is not going to make it easy. The branches weight her down, so much that “she was almost lost among the dark branches” (Jewett). The “green leaves heavy and wet with dew” become obstacles she must pass through (Jewett). “She crept out along the swaying oak limb at last, and took the daring step across into the old pine-tree” (Jewett).
I was travelling down a path; a path I never noticed I was on before. Suddenly, I became very curious about the winding road I found myself treading down. My curiosity grew, until I stumbled upon a fork in the road. There were two sighns at this fork in the road, and just before the devide sat a very confortible chair made of feathers, which beckoned to my weary mind. Sighn one in red letters had the word paradise written on it, and it travelled for as far I could see to the north until it disapered behind some snow capped mountains.
Down-hill long-boarding is the sport of a longer skate board that is meant to mimic a surf board. Some would say it is “snowboarding the gravel” or “surfing the earth” , I would call it soaring the sky of the road. I start a hill by first seeing the view it gives me, looking at all the beauty of nature, seeing the surrounding peace shall give me peace within. Down the blazing gravel trail is the incline that slithers like a snake trying to throw you off of its back, though it may feel hot to the touch the road is ice cold on the inside, it wont think twice taking a little bit of you with your falls. So knowing gravity, the road and everything else on this earth is against this
It showed no mercy. No compassion. No kindness. The frigid temperatures, high winds and snowfall were major factors in the death toll being so high. Someone even wrote a song titled “The Murderous Blizzard”.
Blizzards were so strong that they could trap livestock and homesteaders under the snow. During the long winter of 1886, horses and cattle died when their breaths froze over the ends of their noses, making it impossible for them to breathe. Building a home and establishing a farm was a challenge for even the most experienced farmers, but the free land, abundant wildlife, and richness of the soil made the challenge hard to resist. Choosing Your Homestead Choosing the right location for a homestead was very important. Newly arrived settlers, known as "sod busters," looked for land which featured a stream or creek and small rolling hills which served as windbreaks.
This book takes the reader through in-depth history like first explorers at the base of the mountain and famous climbers who summit. He also writes with extreme detail about the Sherpa culture, for without their skills and adaptations, the attempt to summit would be inconceivable. But along Krakauer’s journey to Mount Everest’s peak, he adds how much more accessible the mountain has become as a result of commercialization. Into Thin Air is most known for its precise structure of the storm in the Death Zone. Although many disagree and criticize his memory of the blizzard, Krakauer recalls specific locations and struggles of the other climbers.
