About four years ago my family and I hiked some of the Appalachian Trail. We hiked to the top of one of the mountains called Blood Mountain. Blood Mountain’s in Georgia and it’s 4,458 ft. tall. They call it Blood Mountain because when it rains the Georgia clay runs down the mountain and it looks almost like blood.
It was a lot of fun to be able to spend time like that with my family and see new and interesting things too. I remember while we were hiking there were these big rocks, which looked like kind of like a turtle, and my siblings and I climbed up them. It was also really funny when my little brother dropped his, what he called, walking stick off the trail and down the mountain so I had to slide down the mountain to get it. It was pretty scary though, because I am deathly afraid of heights. Also, it was hard to climb because of how cold it was so it made it really hard to breathe.
We’ve done a lot of really fun things in Georgia because we have family there so we get to go all the time. Like once we went to Amicalola Falls. We got to stay overnight at a cabin right next to the falls. It was really pretty, but it was kind of scary to stand at the top and look down and see how high up you were.
I think that if my vacations taught me anything, it would be that spending time with your family is one of the most important things in the world. People always say that no matter what happens you always have your friends, but NOTHING tops family.
