We were challenged to write about vacations today. I enjoy my vacations because....
In the fog of an early summer morning you discover why the mountains are called the Smokies.
You marvel at all the beauty and the diversity -of mountains covered with ferns and vines, to mountains covered with pines and colorful aspens, and mountains stark and red climbing straight and bold to the heavens.
You listen to the aspens whispering, the waves crashing, and the stillness of the desert and the calm envelopes you and for a moment you remember what it was like as child to be awed by this wonderful world surrounding us.
