- Turlock HS
- Yosemite National Park. Cloud's Rest.
I see so many rocks, but they're not ordinary rocks, they are rocks that represent how far we have come. I see so many mountains that show how big Yosemite is. I see the bluest sky that I have ever seen. I see trees that from up here, it looks like really green grass. I see paths, paths that we can take once we are going down, and some paths could change our lives forever.
I hear the wind blowing so freely that nothing is stopping it. I hear peace and quiet which we can't get in Turlock. I hear the bees flying against the wind.
I feel the wind blowing the hardest it can, and also dirt. I feel the rocks that have always been here and I never thought I would be standing on them.
I smell the cleanest and freshest air.
I taste the happiness of how we got up here safely.
I feel proud of myself for coming to Cloud's Rest, excited to tell my family how incredible and high it is, and I feel relaxed and peaceful because I forgot my problems back in Turlock.
