Rocky Mountain memories
July 17 was the beginning of a new adventure. I went to Colorado! The morning was a rush, like usual, but when the plane landed, I was stunned.
We were in Vail. I saw the beautiful, lush, green mountains. Then my family and I got some food at the airport and went to our spotless hotel. My brother, dad and I went for a walk near the river. The water sounded so peaceful.
The next day was very exciting. We went to Epic Discovery, which is an outdoor adventure park on a mountain. I got to go zip lining, tubing and bungee jumping and got to eat an ice cream sundae! It was my first time doing all those things – except eating the sundae. We were all very tired when we got home.
When I woke up the next day, I got to go hiking. It wasn’t that hard. I saw a lot of monarch butterflies. That day, we also went to the pool. It was freezing cold! I was the only one out of my family to go in the water. We also went in the hot tub. It felt so good.
The next day was my favorite part. I went white water rafting on the Colorado River! I was so excited. I even made a new friend named Renae. She was from Hong Kong. It was a smooth ride until I sat in the tube. There were rapids too, and a wave went over my head. I was soaked!
When the sun came out the next day, my family and I drove to Denver. The hotel there was very big. That night, Descendants 2 premiered on TV, so my family watched it in bed.
On the last day, the fun wasn’t over. I got to ride a train up a mountain. The beginning was fun, but then it started raining. After the train ride, we went to the airport soaking wet. It was a spectacular trip. Bye bye, Colorado!
