Today I’m going to show you the beauty of Washington State. I went hiking with my schoolmates last week, and it was the second time I went hiking in America. This is one of the reasons why I like Green River College a lot; they provide so many activities and opportunities to try new stuff.
We gathered in school at 8.45 am on Saturday, and departed around 9 am. I had a hard time dragging my body from the bed that morning. It was like trying to escape from a sucking mud, but comfier. Anyway, I made it to the assembly point. We started our journey to the Rattlesnake Ledge which is located in the south of North Bend, Washington.
I got to see the mountain from afar before we arrived there, and at that moment, I knew that my thighs would lose its size after I finished the hiking. We started to walk through the trail, and with each step we took, the view got even better. The length of the trail was about 4 miles round trip (or 6.4 km). Thanks to the dogs I saw during the hike; they encouraged me to enjoy my hike, even though I was drained. After 1 hour of walking, we finally reached the edge.
I stood up on a big rock, and let me tell you something. IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL! I could see other mountains from there, and everything looked green. I spent about 40 minutes enjoying the view, until the time we had to head back....
