The main memory that I remember the most is when I spent my time at the Joshua Tree National Park, rock climbing and hiking. As well as memories that I was rock climbing and hiking at random places in the Mojave Desert. One memory when I was rock climbing/ hiking is when me and my older brother almost stepped on a adult diamondback rattlesnake. Luckily it was at the crack of dawn and winter where you can see your breath and feel the brisk cold, thus the snake was sunbathing and didn’t pay attention to us.
