We repeat a pattern of: go out, explore new trails, get lost, and somehow find our way back each time, but today is different. Today we are going to Custer’s Peak, this is the moment I have been waiting for all week. Ever since I got here, the locals and other people in my group have been telling me that the view here is something unlike anything back in Minnesota. It takes us about 20 minutes of driving up a steep incline but now we are at the top and this is, by far, the best view I have ever seen. I was told this was one of three huge fire watch towers
After the fall out of Hurricane Sandy, New York could very well surrounded by huge levees one day soon. A lawn being a commodity is not even a futuristic nightmare, California has been experiencing a drought for nearly two years; do you think a lawn is even a possibility for a middle class family? Technology is everywhere at every level development especially in the early stages, but is it really as out of hand as Egan suggest; we don’t know and possibly couldn’t know until it’s too late. Egan isn’t taking this from science fiction, she is taking this from real
I still remember the drive down to Orlando, Florida in my mom’s small van packed full of luggage like a small clown car packed full of clowns. I still remember how the weather changed progressively like rapidly moving through the cycle of the seasons as we drove further and further south. I still remember finally arriving in Orlando, Florida and realising just how small Johnson City really is. Orlando was like booming with people like I’ve never seen before. When we finally made it to Orlando, I only had one thing on my mind, “Mom, can we go to Disney World now?”
My Favorite Place to Visit There are many states have I been to in my life. I have made lots of memories with the places I have been to and the people I have went with with. The first time I traveled out of state was when I was three years old.
This would be my fourth time visiting Mexico. Crossing the border is the most nerve racking thing that you could do and I know from experience how dangerous it can be driving to your destination. It was the December the week before finals and my parents had planned on taking a trip to
Being somewhat curious, I asked Cousin John how he survived Katriana. With a big smile on his face, he said, “If I have survived Mardi Gras festivities for all these years, then Katrina was a cakewalk” (Personal Interview). According to the mayor of New Orleans, it is estimated that about 100,000 people had returned, of the 485,000 who lived in New Orleans before the storm. Forty percent of the homes were still without electricity and — again, according to the mayor — half the small businesses, 57,000, may have been lost for good (New Orleans Jazz Funeral).
I 've been to many places in the state but not out of the state. I 've been to Chicago and Springfield many times but the one place I want to go is Florida. I want to go to Florida because my aunt lives out there and haven 't seen her in a while. She always calls during the winter and tells me how warm and sunny it is outside while i 'm sitting here looking out into the cold snow.
Traveling, the number one activity that most people love to do. I actually like to treat myself, by traveling to a different city every other month. This is my way of relaxing and detaching from my daily routine. This past summer, my girlfriend and I decided to travel to Detroit, Michigan.

Over the summer, in August, I traveled to California by myself. About a week later, my brother (Austin) came by himself and a couple days after, my cousin Joseph flew over as well. We stayed at my aunt and uncle’s penthouse in downtown Los Angeles. Then on Saturday morning we set off to San Francisco in a rental car for 5 and half hours. The ride was super long but we had some beautiful sights to watch as we drove by on the warm pleasant day.

Hispanic Americans have played a large role in shaping the Florida we know today. However, the Florida we know today is vastly different from the Florida that was around not too long ago. The person who was primarily responsible for the colonization of the wild, untamed Florida was none other than Spanish Conquistador Pedro Menéndez de Avilés. Menéndez de Avilés brought forth the overall development of Florida by establishing St. Augustine, the oldest continuously-inhabited settlement in the United States, as well as bringing European culture over to the state of Florida. After a month-long journey to the land of Florida, Menéndez de Avilés and his crew arrived in 1565 with the intention of claiming Florida for the Spanish crown.

Sabal Palms usually grow up to sixty-five feet in height.
