I could see the whole mountain in all its beauty. I could see the trails covered in fresh, powder-like snow and the trees swaying in the wind. I witnessed all the mountain’s animals crawl out of the winter homes to forage for their daily meal. The entire mountain seemed to be alive, filled with activity. But the most intricate and intoxicating thing about the mountain was its appearance in the sky.
Three inches of pure fluffy snowflakes covered as far as my eye could see. Soon, my neighbors also came outside to discover the masterpiece that lay in front of them. Children of all ages brought out sleds and began sliding down our hill. My dog began jumping and running around like a scared rabbit as he ran through the thick snow. Up and down the street families were playing outside, laughing and having a good time The delight and happiness that filled our neighborhood was something truly
Someone says, “Are you ok?” I nod yes and they ski away. I look like Frosty the Snowman coming out of a blizzard in a ski parka. I have learned that sometimes you have to risk getting yourself hurt to save other people from harm. However, I also learned that it is really fun to fly through the air on my snowboard. Avoiding those skiers has allowed me to experience something I would have never done otherwise.
As I continue, there are steep avalanche slopes, and run off made into waterfalls. Once I finally stopped singing, there were squirrels and muskrats. There were even mountain goats scaling up impossible cliffs. And at the top, I could see for as far as the world would go. There were peaks and sapphire blue lakes for as far as I could see.
It was pitch black, with the only light coming from a pinhole above me. Inside this contraption was a strange bubbly liquid of a caramel brown color. I swam to the peephole, trying to find out where I was. When I looked out I saw a sea of red and yellow, golden arches, and frantic workers scrambling like ants to fill orders. I felt relatively safe, after all people only pose a danger when there skiing, right?
Snowfall is a pretty sight, the world is still; no movement, even the air stays still. When you look up at the cloudy gray sky and see the snowflakes fall they float down in a graceful path that would make ballerinas look clumsy. It 's a euphoric moment almost, the kid inside you wakes up and without thinking everyones impulsive habit is to scream “It 's snowing!” and raise their hands to the sky asking for more. In this case, I wanted less snow. Leo and I have been driving along highway 25 for only two hours, once we left colorado springs we noticed the first of the snowflakes fall about 30 minutes out.
I thought of this creature’s spirit sagging, and realized, he had no friend, but I had no dragon. The silver scales parted as the dragons face broke out in a wide grin. If you’ve never seen a dragon smile, it’s a sight to behold, well worth your while. A powerful alliance was formed that day as together we walked out of the castle and into the crisp night air. There was a twinkle in his eye as he offered his wings and we flew away.
After the Watsons get back from Alabama, Byron hangs out with Kenny a lot more because he understands that Kenny feels bad about what happened. Byron also finds out that Kenny has been hiding behind the couch and understands that he is waiting there for the “Magic Powers” to heal him like it healed all of the animals that have gotten sick or injured. He also tells Kenny that if it wasn’t for him, Joetta would have gone back into the church and might have died. Byron even lets Kenny cry with his head in his lap instead of telling him to shut up and to go away. Byron closed the the bathroom door so no one else could see him cry.
The Ranch Awakens We arrived to the ranch with our pants scrunched up to our knees, fast food stains smeared on our shirts, and eyes half shut, barely paying attention to the open plains and star lit skies just outside the car. The rusty gates creaked as they swung open, revealing the world of tall grass and herds of cattle hidden deep in the hills of Nevada. The two cars, filled to capacity, rolled up the dirt road leaving behind all sense of civilization. It was night, and thousands of white lights illuminated the sky normally blanketed by the bright streets back home. The air smelled and felt fresh.
Snowboarding, like any other sport, one must be thinking at all times, analyzing situations, making split decisions, and making quick calculations. Before my trip, I had only flown on an airplane once, never by myself, I have never seen a mountain so big, and I had zero experience snowboarding. If I only knew then what I know now, I would have entered this new experience with more confidence in myself. Before my trip to Utah, I had only flown on an airplane once before, and now I was going to fly alone. I was going to meet my father who was already in Utah for a business trip.
Eventually, he discovered a service dogs program for people like him. This is when he became acquainted to Tuesday, a golden retriever service dog. Tuesday helped Montalvan tremendously because she was able to adjust to his mood swings. She had the ability to calm him down if he were ever to start acting violently. Wall Street Journal called Tuesday “a seeing eye dog for the mind” when they discovered what she had done.
