A Montana Fishing Trip As we walked down to the river, the birds were making a whistling noise, and it was quite annoying because the birds were so loud Will and I could barely hear each other. When we were walking down to the river on a rock that was on the path was a famous quote from Muhammad Ali and it was about the river and it said “Rivers, Ponds, Lakes, and Streams - they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do - they all contain truths.” While we were getting closer to the river the birds got so loud and if there was mute button to mute the birds I would have the moment I saw that button because they sounded like there was a train coming through the river. So have you ever heard of a river well a
This was the first time when I realized I may have really pushed her into something she couldn’t do. But after a few minutes and some water, food and my best attempt at a pep talk we were back on the trail. Around noon after about three hours of hiking we came to a rocky clearing. We sat and ate some lunch. It was the first time had seen something other than forest for the last 12 hours and it gave us the motivation to keep going.
As we pull up to the parking area at the start of the trails, I knew that our excitement during the long drive was worth it. I had planned this trip for months. Toiled over the minor details; the food, shelter, entertainment, parking pass, you name it. This was something I had wanted to do since I was just a little kid and now that I was here, it felt surreal. The sound of nature all around us, no signs of man besides our canoe and gear for as far as I could see.
We decided to see where it would led us after all we were at an adventure to find the new. First we where leaded to a hill that at the top stand a deer blind, thankfully it was empty so our journey continued. Along the way we spotted beautiful crystal like rocks and others with metal on them we took a few for souvenirs and other for gifts for our people back at Texas. It was easily a 30 minute walk and we spotted the end of the stream it was a pond, a pond like lake that got waters I 'm guessing from the rains that fell almost daily, we came prepared with a casting net and didn 't wait long before we started fishing there. Even though nothing was caught we knew the experience was going to be told all over town back at home.
I attempted to convey the sense of wonder and nature I felt while on the trip, and I think this is best captured in the first stanza. “The pine trees towered over me, like a human to an ant.” I had to include this because even after all the years I can still remember how small I felt, yet I was in awe of the tree’s size. I then once again slightly exaggerated by saying, “I cut through brush with a machete avoiding any carnivorous plant.” I included the carnivorous plant part because while I was thinking about the trip, I remembered how much of an adventure it felt like.
Bursting through the surface of refreshing ice cold water, you feel as if you came back to life, but hear you are staring straight ahead at mother natures home, but you have to be careful because like every home there will always be one insect or little creatures lurking around this beautiful natural made home. As you 'll recover from stumbling over rocks. You pick yourself back up, and continue the journey. Kloofing is an amazing experience it may be tough but, you will get through it. This experience was truly a memorable one and one that I won 't ever forget especially since it something that I can 't undo.....
It was a cold crisp morning, the sun climbed the tree tops and showed it’s beautiful colors. The water shimmered and shined just like a glass mirror sitting in the hot summer sun. The birds chirped out songs, every note was perfect and in tune. The water bugs danced on the water, they almost looked like figure skaters as they twisted and made sharp turns. An eagle flew by searching for food as her young chicks cried, they were hungry.
The smell of moist dirt and grass along with the sound of hundreds of massive trees swaying and rustling in the wind puts me at ease and makes me feel at home. Naturally, I was interested in camping and hiking as I grew older, and eventually decided to join the Boy Scouts. While in the Scouts I learned hundreds of skills, many involving wilderness survival; I would also go on multiple hikes and camp outings. There were many camping trips I went on that provided memories that will last forever, but there is one that caused me to change the way I think about
Every time I touched water after that, it seemed like I couldn’t breathe like I was drowning all over again. It took years until I felt like comfortable even touching water again. I had gone to the pool after that, but I stayed on the concrete, away from the water. I got into the pool around four years later, just feeling of the water slowing rippling across my torso made me hesitant. Soon I was fully submerged, but this time laughing, forgetting the terrible events of the
Again the creature finds happiness in his new surroundings, particularly when he encounters birds for the first time. He nostalgically recalls “I was delighted when I first discovered that a pleasant sound [came from] the throats of little winged animals” (109). ??? what else here ??? As he continues his wandering, he experiences more about the natural world every day.
