I stepped off of the minuscule plane at about 6:00 pm, and I quickly waited in the frigid cold for my bags to be unloaded. 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. She told me about the history of the Athabascan people who had made Lake Clark their home so many years ago. My mother also told me about the icy flowing waters and the diverse group of animals who make Lake Clark their home. I've been looking forward to coming to this beauty for the past 3 months ever since my mom had finally agreed to let me go.
I started out the summer working at McDonalds. When about two or three weeks went by, I had to go to Summer School. My family and I went tubing and drove around on a jet ski at cedar shore. I also went fishing on most of my off days and almost every Friday. When school ended and Summer School was going to start I had to retake an English course.
People may learn a lot from society today, but there are always things that no one really can learn without the help from nature. Transcendentalists use nature to learn life a lot. One famous Transcendentalists wrote many stories about nature. One of these stories being The Pond in Winter does talk about a pond in the winter season, but this story has more meaning that just a pond in winter. There are many things that anyone can find in nature, which mean that there is always life to learn from nature.
The next day we had to pack up and head back home. As we drove out of the driveway of the cabin, I was sad because we had to leave the place I have loved since I was a little boy. As the sun sets I dreamed of returning to Mann Lake for another adventure with my
Going to Silver Falls is a wonderful experience to see landscape. First, I have gone to Silver Falls, in Oregon, twice. My friends and I rented a car to drive there. Before we left Corvallis which is an hour from Silver Falls, we bought sufficient food for breakfast and lunch. We arrived there around 8 am.
I was in 4rd grade and I have never been to Mexico before. My mother decided to take me there for about two weeks to visit my family there and my grandparents, but during that time I was still attending school so the teacher just gave me two weeks of school work to make up when I get back. I got home and my mother was already packing up, so I went to pack my stuff and picked out my favorite clothes to wear. Once I was done, I went to sleep, mother awakened me up at 3am to get ready to leave to the airport. After a very long wait in lines at the airport, we were finally boarded on the plane.
The Stargazers were the only thing that kept me sane during the four weeks at camp this past summer. Illahee means heavenly world in Cherokee language. And for me, it has been my haven for the past nine years. But this summer was different. I was living in a rather small cabin with eight, ten-year-old girls and my best friend was not there to keep me from going crazy.
Getting off the plane and being blasted by the hot, humid air was only the beginning of my long two week stay in El Salvador. It was only my second time going to El Salvador but it had really changed compared to the last time I went, but for my mom it was her first time back in 20 years and it was a sight to see when my mom and my grandma got reunited. From there, my little brother went with his dad's side of the family and the rest of us went with my mom's side. It was a 2 hour drive from the airport to my grandmas and it was around 2am, the usually crowded streets and markets were empty and the heat just as unbearable.
It had been a week since I had seen him, and phone calls just weren’t sufficient any longer. The wedding was in Ogden so we stayed with Tamara Simon, a family friend, in Layton. We all sat around the massive island in her kitchen, talking about weddings and missions and other great events in our lives. She just happened to be the missionary that brought my family back to the church
The last and final vet clinic that I visited was the Lakeland Vet Clinic, which is located in Manson. With the help of my mom, I had successfully gained a few hours of job shadowing. I was ecstatic but also nervous because I have never personally experienced what the every day life of a vet is really like. On a Monday morning, my mom drove me to the clinic. When we walked in both my mom and I were introduced to Dr. Rich the Assistant Vet.
When he was found he was hospitalized for several days in Knoxville, then when he got home he was sent to a local hospital. Henderson is one of many who have chosen to venture out onto the Appalachian trial. One person who decided to hike the trail was Sean Gobin who right on his last day in the Marine Corp’s decided to hike the trail. The trail did a good deal to his perspective of humans after his 3 deployments with how supportive people were on the A.T. Then there was Vickie Holloway who did the trail to cope with her husband always having to leave for Special Ops missions.
Off to Tahoe One day when I was visiting Tahoe my mom called a family meeting and she said we were all as a family going to move to Incline Village. I started crying on the inside but on the outside I was showing much exitement. I felt really sad but I didn’t want to disappoint my mom so I never told her.
Many memorials were made as recognition of all those who lost their lives. A young girl at the age of 28 years old died on flight 11. Her name was Sara Low, the daughter of Mike Low from Batesville, Arkansas. She was a flight attendant and had only been on the job for a few years. Her photo is memorialized at the museum for the memorial exhibition (“Sara Low”) (“Family”).
Getting down to Nebraska was harsh and the trail was dusty. The children like me had to take care of the animals. Jim, Antonia and myself became really good friends after living next door to each other for a while and we do everything together. When I work, I help my dad to plant and harvest crops and hunt for food. We planted and harvested corn, potatoes, pumpkin, wheat, peas, carrots and tomatoes.
