We had around an hour left of the journey when we reached traffic. The snow was coming down very hard and the highway began to be covered. We soon exited the highway to connect to a different one when we saw traffic ahead. The roads had gotten so bad that the highway was blocked off for a while. We didn’t think much of it, we still had quite a lot of time to get to the train and we had food, water, and blankets with us.
The bombers were brothers. The police found the older brother several days before, shortly after the bombing, but they were still looking for the younger one.

I'd been begging my mom for a trip to Lake Clark in Port Alsworth, Alaska ever since 4 years ago when she told me the story how she read about the parks establishment on December 2nd, 1980 when she was only 10 years old.

My mother also told me about the icy flowing waters and the diverse group of animals who make Lake Clark their home.

While they were on this trip, they made it to the top but when they were descending down the mountain in the Himalayas Reinhold was a little bit ahead of his brother, which was typical on their hiking trips, when Reinhold had realized that he hadn't seen his brother in awhile he decided to go back and look for him. As Reinhold was put on trial he said “Then I stumbled on the debris from an avalanche… I couldn't believe that my brother might be buried there, might be dead”(Douglas 1). After the trip was over he was blamed for the death of his brother and put on trial but finally vindicated after 35 years, this shows how a mistake can lead to misery because it explains how just one mistake, in this case it's him getting too far ahead of his brother, can lead to misery, being that his brother is now
