Unforgettable Southwest Trip

I went on a totally amazing Southwest trip with my classmates. The trip was my first time to go to the Southwest so everything was new to me. Sarah, Anikke and Bethany came with us. They made our trip more exciting. I’m happy I could go on this trip with them and I had a lot of great experiences.

First, I really enjoyed New Mexico. It was chilly but not too cold. I went to the Old Town in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I liked the Old Town because there are many cute things and good restaurants in there. For example, I found a gate that was decorated with a lot of red chili peppers. I had never seen anything like that before so I was very surprised and it looked like a lot of flowers from a distance. The red chili peppers were absolutely gorgeous. Not only that, I found a great restaurant. I forgot the name of the restaurant but they have really delicious Mexican food. They gave me some Mexican chips for free and recommended that I eat the chips with honey. I really like Mexican chips but I had never tried eating chips with honey. It was really good. I ordered an enchilada plate and it was a big portion and very delicious. I want to eat that again. New Mexico was a great place to enjoy different culture.

Second, Acoma was a totally amazing place. There I want to the Sky City and the Laguna-Acoma Jr and Sr High School. The Sky City was a village of Acoma Pueblo. It was really cold and windy. There were many adobe buildings and they looked old. That was my first time to see adobe so it caught my attention. The buildings were bigger and firmer than I thought. I can’t believe they were made from mud. Also, I went to Laguna-Acoma Jr and Sr high school. The students of the school took me on a tour for showing the school buildings and classes. They danced their traditional dance and gave me many delicious foods. The dance looked easy to me but the music was new to me. They wore some traditional clothes when they dance and some of the clothes were made from hides and furs. These looked very warm but also they looked heavy. The foods were really delicious, I especially liked the fried bread. It had a simple taste but it was really good. There were many adobe buildings in Acoma and I really enjoyed that.

Third, I had new experiences at the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon was absolutely enormous. One of my dreams was to go to the Grand Canyon so my dream came true. I watched a sunset and a sunrise at the Grand Canyon. It was totally wonderful. Especially, the sunrise was absolutely amazing. I woke up at 4:30am in order to watch the sunrise. After I watched the sunrise, I walked around the Grand Canyon. I walked for 20 km and took a walk for three thousands steps. It was really hard for me because usually I don’t walk so much. However, thanks to that I could see many beautiful things. For example, I met many wild animals such as elk and deer. They were adorable. Also I could find many wild plants such as cactuses. I was very tired but I felt happy. I will never forget this memory.

In conclusion, the Southwest trip was definitely fantastic. I could experience a lot of wonderful things. I want to visit there again with my children in the future.

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

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

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 aro
