This summer I went with my whole family to the mountains for a week. In all honesty, I enjoyed getting away from the summer assignments, conflicts, and almost everything to taking in a serene scene that allowed me to experience tranquility and the power of nature. These kind of trips are, in my opinion, imperative to take once in a while. It allows your mind, body, and internal self to relax and come to peace with yourself. The weather when we went to the mountains was just perfect, not too cold nor too hot. My favorite activity during the trip was staring into the sky. For some sort of reason, it feels very different to view the clouds from the mountains. I am planning to go again to just relax and enjoy myself over the summer.
