Going Out West - My Family Travels


Going from Wisconsin to Montana, there are a lot of changes. Changes I never knew occurred I saw right before my eyes. On this trip, I learned a lot of life values, geographical changes, and saw species I didn’t know existed. It was a life experience.

            Life values were one of the things I learned on this trip. I got to see the United States through the window of a car. After visiting a major battleground, I realized there is more to look at than the negative. Our ancestors who fought on those grounds dedicated their lives to America. They didn’t just die, they died so that we could have a future. It made me realize my life wasn’t so horrible.

            I was younger at the time, so I wasn’t aware that the land would be different from that of Wisconsin. As we drove there, I noticed things slowly changing as we got closer. In Hartford, WI, people don’t have mountains in their back yard like my uncle did. I also had no knowledge of the hot springs which I visited. I learned a lot about the temperatures and how they were formed. It was definitely a learning experience.

            I also saw species of animals I’d never seen before such as a bald eagle. We were visiting Yellowstone Park and drove past a bald eagle. Since it’s an endangered species, there were workers guarding it and it’s nest. I finally understood what America’s mascot meant. In
America, you can be free and strong like an eagle.
