With only two tracks now, only cars were being used on that road. White expresses how, “There had always been three tracks to choose from in choosing which track to walk in” (White, 31), now it was limited to two. He was saddened by seeing this change and for a moment, he began to miss the third track badly. The second change that White reflected upon was the feeling when arriving at the lake. White cherishes his memories and realizes that the summers he passed at the lake as a young boy were precious and worth saving.
One of the first instances when yellow occurs is when Rayona and Father Tom jump aboard the 'God Squad Express' heading to the Teens for Christ Jamboree. While traveling, Father Tom decides they should stop at Bearpaw Lake State Park for a rest and dip in the lake Rayona without hesitation soars into the icy water and swims out to a lonely yellow raft. "By the time I get to the low yellow raft, I'm out of breath and chilled. I pull myself over the side and lie on the sun warmed dry boards, panting and soaking up the heat. The silence is wide as the sky".
During the drive to our first stop I saw many beautiful sites; mountains, lakes, rivers, forests... the nature was truly amazing! We even saw black tail deer and elk roaming right along side of the road. Our first stop was the city of Aberdeen but we only visited Gray's Harbor for an hour to stretch our legs and see if we could spot any gray whales but we didn't see any. Our next stop was beautiful Ruby Beach in the town of Kalaloch. You have to walk a trail through the forest to get to the beach and we enjoyed it so much!
“Because the park is an excavated storm water retention basin, its features are arrayed at three different elevations.” The upper street level tier provides picnic as well as little and big kids play area. The middle tier has wide sloped walkways and a huge playing field for the public to run and toss a Frisbee, playing football or soccer. The last tier was a fenced lake with three docks. In the center of the lake, there’s a small island and a large widowed tree. This was a very pleasant park, considering this side of town in Fresno.
If you have ever seen the main mountain in Taos which is where our beautiful sacred Blue Lake is located and which is where our main river flows from. Blue Lake is a sacred land where our tribe goes to celebrate the Kiva boys’ commitment into becoming a man and practicing our native ways. The river flows right through the middle of the pueblo. The river has been useful to everyone in the pueblo for centuries. Families walk down to the river with buckets to get water for their home to bathe, drink, and cook with.
There are probably thousands of elements of nature that symbolize something or other, but in the book The Natural by Bernard Malmud, the elements of nature that are used: flowing water, thunder and lighting, and trees, prove a theme that is consistent throughout the book: nature is on the side of good people. Flowing water, especially rivers, have always been a symbol of beginnings to the main character, Roy Hobbs. Rivers are often associated with beginnings-beginnings of life, beginnings of a dream, beginnings of a goal (Louis, “Symbols”). Roy has experienced some of these beginnings as well as others. Before Roy joined the baseball team the Knights, he lived right by a river.
Some may find that they're peaceful and in harmony with nature by just stepping out into their backyard. Although each one of these places are all different, they all have one thing in common -- they are the places of nature that help people to be brought to their better self. Personally, because of where I’ve been raised and the things I love to do in life, the ocean is my own sanctuary of nature's beauty. As a child, nature had always been a large part of my life. Many kids my age spent the majority of their childhood watching movies like the Lion King, which as a 17-year-old, I have still yet to see the beloved childhood movie.Instead, I spent my time out on the water, surfing, wake boarding, swimming, and baking up the sun.
KMJ March 22, 2004 EC1 Descriptive Essay “The Lake” A psychiatric joke, “go to your happy place,” and my weary mind always retreats down the same worn path that once led to the two-room cabin that my grandfather built at Wilson Lake. Hundreds of acres of old, tall trees, standing sentry and guarding the secret beauty of the deep and serene cedar water lake. Where, once the last flag had been lowered at sundown on Memorial Day, families in their station wagons would begin to bounce along the dirt roads of the old camp ground, settling in for the summer in this beautiful mossy place. The moist ground beneath the beds of fallen leaves awakens with rusty metal rakes, pulling back the heavy blankets of mother nature’s bounty. Thick black smoke from metal cans and fire pits fills the air, and yet while your nose becomes stuffy, the smell of the burning leaves is more than oddly comforting.

My family and I had a wonderful time which made for many memories. When we first arrived to Disney it was like nothing I had ever seen. We stayed at Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. It was a timeless beauty of the American frontier, with deer, rabbits, and ducks roaming free amid the pine and cypress forest. The Florida Gators were playing that day so after we dropped our luggage off at our cabin, my boyfriend and I went to Crockett’s tavern to watch the game.
