Heading in the north on the street takes to the haven of Shimla named ‘kufri’. It is clear, snowy, and flat downhill area for skiing. At Kufri when cold waves of air penetrate winter clothes and touches body, it gives encouragement to ski in freezing temperature rather than sitting down in hill cottage with hot chocolate coffee in giant mugs.

Being part of traditional celebrations, monthly-celebrated carnivals is missed, but still memories are fresh in the mind.
This area of the world is so foreign to my Oklahoma life; it infuses me with awe, and with an eerie feeling of being strongly enclosed by huge mountains, and the mass of tall trees. However, when my foot first steps onto the dusty trail it feels crazily magical. The clean, crisp air, the new smell of evergreen trees and freshly fallen rain is mixed with fragrances I can only guess at. It is like the world has just taken a steroid of enchantment! I take it all in, and embrace this new place before it leaves like a dream and reality robs the moment.
The bustling city is overcast, it’s windy and grey, but the rev of the car’s engine racing out of the city limits seems to coincide with the brightness and the liveliness that grows the further you escape it. Hours fly by and the road begins to rise and wind as the clouds thin. When my ears begin to pop I know I’m nearing my destination. I roll down my window, gazing at the trees as they fly by, and the crisp air wakens me as the fresh pine overcomes and relaxes my every being. The long road to my parent’s house goes on for miles, but a small post in the ground marks the dirt driveway the rises up onto the property.

Spokane is close enough to the Cascades to make it an attractive tourist destination, especially for ski trips. Plenty of green space and a recent downtown renaissance gives Spokane a fresh small-town appeal despite its size. Hints of the city's industrial roots remain, but the warehouses have become converted into galleries, theaters and elegant apartments. Central Washington is rugged country. The Cascades form the backbone of the state, and the mountain chain's rain shadow falls to the eastern central portion of Washington to create a desert environment of harsh, but haunting beauty.
Turning off of the main road I am always amazed by how many trails we are able to see without even leaving the comfort of my pickup truck. Enjoying the warmth of the dry air blasting onto our faces from the vents, I glanced over to my best friend Baloo, sitting in the chair next to me. The slobbery, toothy grin on his face, reminded me how much he loves being out of the city. As he wiggled in his chair with excitement, begging me to let him out so he could frolic through the newly fallen snow, I knew I wouldn't be able to keep him contained for much longer. I quickly put on my chocolate colored snow pants and slipped into my ancient snow boots that have clearly seen better days.

Escape From the City On any given weekend, thousands of Americans flock to the mountains to escape the rigors of city life. An escape from their bustling, smog coated, deadline driven lives, is a necessary part of 21st century life in an American city. Mans desire to commune with nature can be traced back to the earliest civilizations, and while that desire may have lessened somewhat in the past couple hundred years, the enjoyment of nature still remains. In Colorado, a mixture of big city life surrounded by wondrous miracles of nature can be found. Thus, every Friday in summer time one can observe long lines of vehicles traveling the vast highways leading out of the city and up into the Rocky Mountains.
St Hugh’s is situated in affluent north Oxford in a beautiful rectangle of 14 acre of woodlands, a mere 15-minute walk from the city centre. However, the student essentials of snack bars, pubs, post office, hairdresser and newsagent are all close by. The college has a reputation for the biggest snowball fights in the winter and the wettest, meanest water pistol duels (full scale battles really) in the summer. All this from an institution originally set up to educate the gentile ladies from modest backgrounds (daughters of the Anglican clergy) who might like an Oxford education. Today the college continues to offer assistance to allow fieldwork and travel to the less well off.
