We decided to take off and climb down towards the water pool. Following the trail, we lost sight of the waterfall for most of the time it took to climb down. As we neared the bottom, huge rocks at the edge of the waterfall blocked all view of it. Once the waterfall became visible, it was more beautiful that ever. From the bottom, we could

Wincing, Butters rolled on his side, and managed to climb to his feet. That was going to leave one heck of a bruise. His first attempt at sneaking out had been less than graceful but...he was out. That was what counted, right? "Well...heh, alright! That wasn't so bad!" Checking left and right, Butters dashed

    Krakauer and Erik Weihenmayer. Climbing mountains was what these two had in common. These two men, who had both loved climbing since they were young, were both incredible climbers and also writers. They each wrote a memoir concerning one specific climb that had had an effect on his life, as well as other novels. This means that strangely enough, both men loved mountain climbing and writing. Although their situation was similar, Jon Krakauer and Erik Weihenmayer had had different experiences and we

I was not a boy of course, but wanted to be. I climb trees, even ones sticky with sap. The smell of pine hangs on me as I lie in bed at night. I ride up the hill on Saturday, find David and set to digging a big hole in the dirt. We collect old pans and buckets from his mom’s messy kitchen and create

    Isn’t it funny how much of our lives will be forgotten? I think it is. We spend so much time immersed in these little moments that will soon float downstream, never to be seen again. I do, at least. I imagine my mind to vaguely resemble the moon, at least in a metaphorical sense. Meteors roar out of the cosmos and smash into me, and the collateral damage wipes out days and months of memories in favor of an impression of a single catastrophic event. Sometimes I feel like I’m all craters where all

    Pain on the Playground On one fateful evening, in the summer of 2001, an incident occurred that would scar me for life. At the beginning of the day, the routine was as normal as any other day. I would get up, climb out of bed, head into the kitchen, enjoy a bowl of cereal, put on my sneakers, and head across the street to the playground. As I entered the playground that day, I was totally oblivious to what was about to transpire. Until this summer evening, pain was only a four letter word in my

    Making the Climb The alarm clock rang and I forced myself out of bed. I took a shower, ate breakfast, brushed my teeth--all my other normal morning routines. But that day was not normal at all. I was going to do something with my English class that I never thought I would do. I was going to hike up Poly Canyon. With a horrible night’s sleep and a sore throat, I was not in the mood to undergo a “moderately strenuous” hike, but I pushed myself to get ready. Once the entire class had assembled

    It is essential that climbers carry the correct equipment for the climb to Mount Everest. The clothing that climbers will need has to be breathable material. If the material is not breathable, the suit traps the sweat inside the climber’s suit making the climber cold. The equipment has to be up to date and reliable. If the equipment is unreliable, then the climber has a high chance of risking his life. The climber’s safety is extremely important in climbing Mount Everest. Anything can happen on the

    Krakauer's Into Thin Air and Boukreev's The Climb On the day of May 10, 1996, several climbers were attempting to descend the slopes of Mount Everest in blizzard conditions: a time at which every moment mattered.

Anatoli Boukreev and Jon Krakauer recounted the situation of that day in very different ways, but Krakauer seemed to portray Boukreev as an antagonist in his book

    The gospel of Luke portrays a distinctive theme as it interprets the story of Jesus to an intellectual audience. Luke tries to relate his writings to other ancient Greco-Roman and Jewish historical narratives of that time-period offering interesting details of what actually took place in the life of Jesus. One particular topic within the text is the sadness Jesus shows concerning the rich and the poor, which is presented several times throughout Luke’s gospel (Mueller 71-73). Recorded only in Luke

    Women have long been considered the child breeders and homemakers in society, but in recent decades that has changed; women are becoming more economically independent by entering the work force rather than taking on the role of a housewife. Even though women are changing the workforce in today’s corporate America, they still lack the confidence that men –who work in the same fields- up hold for themselves. In today’s society very few women have taken the initiative to compete for that leading position
