Relevance of the Sierra Nevada

I close my eyes. As I open my eyes I notice that I am standing on, what is now history of California? I'm standing on the trails miners walked to look for gold. I'm looking at the waters that every Californian drinks. I look at the mountains and wonder if the history of California will be passed on to the future generations. California has given many Americans food, gold, and water. As I look at my classmates, I wonder if we will one day become a part of history. It's exhilaration to know I'm walking through what is now history in California, everyday that I learn about my state, will be an every-day excitement.

The Spirit of Adventure
I had an experience of hiking a high mountain by myself and as the quote says it gave me a spirit of adventure. I always thought that I would be really scared of having to hike on my own; now I know I'm not. Now I think I have a quote of my own. "Never think you can't do anything; because that's what stops you from having fun in life". Now I know that the mountains aren't just trees, and rivers, but mountains give you a spirit of life.
