Completely amazing trip

I had a good time visiting the Southwest USA with Extension students from 15 to 21, October. It was an education trip and I experienced new things and there was a lot of nature which is comfortable for me. I was looking forward to going on the Southwest trip for a long time. I have image that the Southwest is very hot but this place was cold than Spokane. It was interesting that the temperature was totally different in the same place. There were three emotions that I experienced on this trip.

First, I was moved by the beautiful landscape of the Grand Canyon. It is absolutely enormous. When I look down the cliff, I remembered the teacher's caution for us that there are lots of people who die and I scared. I and my roommate wanted to see the sunrise so we tried to got up at 4:00 a.m. and then we could see the sunrise which was really fabulous. After that, we decided to rent a  bicycle but we changed our mind and because we had lots of time. Surprisingly, we walked 10 miles around there. It made me really exhausted but I got a precious experience which can see the beautiful landscape at the Grand Canyon.

Second, I felt the power of an earth by blowing a hole in Wupatki National Monument. The warm air and cold air were blowing up from the hole. It seems unknown where the hole is connected. That's a mystery. I have never seen and heard anything like this hole. There are many pueblo rooms and I and my friends guessed what kind of room is there. I thought everything looked like a similar room. It is mysterious to think that old people lived there. By the way, I did search on this place before the trip in American West class so I was excited. As a result, it was better legacy than I expected.

Third, I felt a difference between Santa Fe and other places I have visited in the USA. All the buildings were made with adobe, and the whole city was brown. We enjoyed the landscape. Also, we enjoyed Mexican food such as tacos, black beans, and avocado. In addition, there was honey in all the restaurants which I visited and we ate tacos with honey and it was very delicious. I want to try that again. In the morning, people sold a lot of accessories such as necklaces, rings, and bracelets which used turquoise and other stones in front of the Plaza. I bought a turquoise bracelet because Santa Fe is famous for turquoise. Now, it has become my favorite accessory. Also, I was surprised that Santa Fe is movie stage city of my favorite movie which is COCO. It was like Mexico.

In conclusion, I had a totally wonderful time on this trip. I could see beautiful landscape, good legacy, and interesting culture of Santa Fe. I have learned lots of new things like history on this trip. All the places where I went to this time were surrounded by nature and my mind calmed down. I was impressed by beautiful scenery and I got very nice memories. I want to go there again with my family.

My Unbelievable Southwest Trip

I experienced a lot of amazing things for seven days with my absolutely wonderful teachers and friends from October 15-21 and learned a lot of Southwest culture, history, and nature. For example, we went to about 12 museums and facilities, such as the Pueblo Cultural Center, the University of Mexico, and some churches in New Mexico and Arizona. Therefore, I kept busy on the trip, but it became something I have never experienced because everything I saw was new to me. There are three things that especially impressed me. First, I was attracted to the buildings of New Mexico. These were really different from Spokane, Boston, or Washington D.C. For example, I went to Old Town in Albuquerque. Then I noticed that almost all the buildings were made of adobe. Adobe means mud brick in Spanish, so the buildings I saw were brown and some parts were air blue. I felt comfortable there. I also saw a plaza and a church which were adobe style buildings. The plaza is the most central part in Old T

Really Faburous Southwest Trip

I had an absolutely amazing experience on the Southwest trip in mid-October. I enjoyed a good deal of beautiful scenery of nature and city areas, delicious food and performances, and culture. I spent a lot of wonderful time with my friends and teachers in Santa Fe, Black Bart’s Restaurant and the Grand Canyon. I enjoyed a good deal of beautiful scenery of nature and city, delicious food and performance, and culture. First, my one of impressive places was Santa Fe Plaza. There were brown houses and buildings made of adobe, and the doors and window frames and decorations were colorful. I like passionate red and turquoise blue color because these colors match the adobe brown color. Also, there were many gift shops in the Plaza, and we could find a lot of native Americans gifts such as dream catchers, pottery, fabrics, unique fashion accessories, dishes, and traditional clothes. I bought a dreamcatcher, some pretty earrings, a ring, and postcards, so I was very happy. It rained at nig

My most Amazing Three Memories of the Southwest Trip

Last week, I went to the Southwest with all of the Extension students. Before the trip, we learned about history and culture of the Southwest in American west class. So I was looking forward to going on the Southwest trip. But I couldn’t imagine that I could get a lot of memories and experiences on this trip. During this time, we went to New Mexico and Arizona. In New Mexico, I went to Santa Fe and New Mexico University. After that, I went to the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Each place has different culture and geography. So I was really surprised and impressed by them. Finally, I got three most amazing memories of the Southwest Trip. First, one of my most amazing memories of South West Trip was downtown in Santa Fe. First of all, I was really impressed by Adobe buildings. I had never seen Adobe buildings before and I thought their design was totally different design from Spokane. The color of the adobe was brown and some of the walls were turquoise blue. So there were a lot of com
