    My Woodstock journey started about three days before the festival was set to begin. A couple of my friends, myself included, heard a promotion for Woodstock on the radio and one day later we decided to pack our bags and hit the road. It was roughly a two hour drive from New York City, where I was living at the time. There we started a week we would never forget. The drive to Bethel wasn’t too bad, it was full of laughs and lots of hash. We were about 20 miles from the site of the festival and traffic

    The fall breeze kissed my face as I unzipped my tent flap. I smiled faintly as I closed my eyes and inhaled the smoky campfire air. This was the first camping trip I could remember, and every second had been beautiful. I was the vulnerable age of only 6, and leaned on my parents every moment I could. Tonight was no different, and I held on tightly to my father’s hand while the rest of the camp group started walking. We planned to go to a nearby meadow, to stargaze. The mountains were a perfect place

    Up around 6:30, and on the road by 6:45. My Dad is driving, my older brother is up front in the passenger’s seat, and my little brother and I are in the back - probably with me sprawled all over him, as I tend to do in any car ride longer than 40 minutes. We are off to our annual end-of-summer hike. This year, the same as lasts: Saddle Mountain. With an elevation gain of around 2,000 feet over two and a half miles, Saddle is a fairly difficult hike to say the least. In addition to containing an

    There was a running stream that ran from north to south a few meters away from where we were sitting, the fizzing of the leaves above us from the pine trees was very soothing and an eerie coyote cry made the night even more interesting. We were at the back porch playing fish or cut bait, a pretty simplistic but yet challenging board game that tested your ability to do fast decisions that wouldn 't affect the rest of your turn in the game. We had simple snacks and a charming background acoustic guitar

    As our life demands more and more of our time, it is important that we find a place that we can go to unplug and become one with nature. Although there are many places to go to unwind, nothing quite compares to a park. When you hear the word “park” you might think of swings and children playing on the merry-go-round. However, what I am referring to is the park in the more natural sense; a State Park. Of the many I have visited in Florida; Fort Clinch is by far my favorite. Fort Clinch State Park

    Every year the day after school ends in May, my dad, my brothers, and I go camping in Colorado in the Rocky Mountains. We usually go for a week (7days), and work 2 or 3 days. Our work usually consists of clearing undergrowth and brush, digging up junipers, picking up aspen and fir tree deadfall, along with many many other things. My favorite part of the trip is when we load up and leave camp to go to the Great Sand Dunes for the day. There, we rent sandboards (snowboards for sand) and sleds
