Ski This was my first time going skiing in 2010. I felt nauseous stepping onto skis and riding down the huge snowy mountain. When we were there I saw on the top of the snowy mountain a surge of people. Also, I felt pretty scared that I might crash and break a leg or two. Then we went onto the lift and snow started falling little by little.
Skiing has always put me at ease, I loved the feeling of zooming past trees while the cold, Colorado air hit my face. I have been skiing since I was nine years old, and it has since then become an annual trip. The third skiing trip my family took was when I was eleven, in Telluride, Colorado. On the second day of skiing, my older brother, Neill, and I took the ski lift near the top of the mountain and decided to ski all the way down.
Keep in mind he was a “professional” and was supposed to guide the group. Even after being seven people down the rest of the group continued to climb up the mountain. They did not turn back until the weather got worse, on their way down they were caught in a complete blizzard where visibility was almost completely gone. At this point they made the decision to make a snow cave shelter. They managed to survive the night and the next morning a student and professional mountaineer hiked for 16 hours until they found help.
An example of when she uses pathos is as follows, “A cold, wet day on the ice blue slopes of New England, freezing in leather boots and the generation of ski clothes before microfibers was far preferable to being left out of all the fun. Miss the lunches of soggy tuna fish sandwiches and Hershey Minis? No way!” This expresses pathos/emotions because, clearly stated, it was funny. If you went skiing in the sixties you would be able to relate and reflect back on those moments and laugh.
The Big Hike The grade 7 students at ladner elementary went to Evans Lake, and had a awesome time, Sukhman Sidhu one of the grade 7’s at Ladner Elementary told us a story about the big hike and asked if we could share the story, so we are here to tell you about the story “The Big Hike”. It was around 10:00 am when the grade 7’s went on a hike, on this hike they hiked up a mountain, and at the top chief told them a story. It was a beautiful day at Evans Lake, all the students were lined up in front of the rec hall in their cabin groups waiting for instructions. At around 10:10 the teachers gave the students information and instructions, they were informed that they were going on a hike and it would take about 40 minutes to hike up the mountain and 40 minutes to hike down the mountain, all the students were very happy.
The point of view of the book is first-person, and it is narrated by Jon Krakauer. As the narrator, Krakauer is a reliable source of information since the book is his own personal account of the disaster. The setting of Into Thin Air is Mount Everest, where Krakauer and his team climbed in 1996. All through the struggle up Everest

We planned to go to a nearby meadow, to stargaze. The mountains were a perfect place to look at the sky, as they were unadulterated by city lights. Nothing terrified me more than the night sky, which seemed like an endless void. There was so much space that it felt as if I would get sucked in.
After some time admiring the view, we begin to walk along one of the trails that goes along the rim. We share a few laughs, but the view itself is too overpoweing and that keeps drawing my eye. I do my best to keep my friends enterained, never getting too close to the edge of the canyon and have a great time. We continued to explore the area for a few hours and but then the sun began to fall low on the horizon, the clouds and rain began to move in.
The flight from Kathmandu, which takes around forty-five minutes, passes over the fertile middle hills, with their scattered villages and terraced fields, with an amazing panorama of the high Himalaya as a backdrop. Before long the mountains close in and you are sweeping down to land at the gateway to Everest-Lukla. Situated high above the banks of the Dudh Koshi river, which carries the melt water from Everest, Lukla provides a range of services, including accommodation but most trekkers will choose to start trekking as soon as they arrive and use Lukla as a final destination on their
There was more, these are just the ones that were there for the… incident. For this merit badge, we had to go out into the camp’s trails to explore nature for fifteen minutes a day. We found this nice spot.
In June of 2004, after first grade, we packed up a trailer to drive up there. We were driving to Washington and then taking the Ferry from there to Haines, Alaska. Since we drove, I was able to watch how the scenery changed as we got further north.
