- Ascent - 1,021 words
Ascent During high school, two friends and I decided to try and backpack all over the country. Andrew, Jeff, and I took trips to places like the Grand Canyon, Santa Fe, and the Buffalo River. After each trip the three of us would say, "weve got to go somewhere better, more challenging." So during the spring break of my junior year we decided to pack the Wet Mountains in Colorado. We planned the trip for weeks, calling the ranger station, checking weather conditions, and planning out meals for the trip. We knew the trail would be a little more difficult than anything we had done before, would, but we never conceived of St. Charles Peak being too challenging. We started out about six in the mo ...

- Cozumel - 608 words
Cozumel Paradise In Mexico, off the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula is an island. The island is surrounded by coral reefs filled with life.

If it's right or wrong, it's been done, and people pay lots of money to ride on the big luxury liners. The large dock juts out toward the mainland, and the surf there is calm. The beach is not. Small children w ...
