    We finally made it! The long drive made everyone exhausted, but it was worth the four hour drive. My dad would talk about our cabin so much. He would tell us stories from when he was a kid, he made the cabin sound so awesome. Our cabin was built in 1960 on Dora Lake in Dora Lake,Minnesota. It was 2007 and being 7 years old in a new place with new people is kind of scary. When we first arrived my dad asked my brothers and me to unpack before we go exploring.

    Greenway Trail that I jog roundtrip numerous times a week. It is a 1.5 mile stretch from the middle of East Setauket to its endpoint in Port Jefferson Station.

What fascinates me is the varied topographies – both geographic and cultural – it cuts across. The landscape itself is surprising; after leaving the residential neighborhoods, the trail dips into

All I’ve been through is forest after forest after forest. It’s beautiful but it isn’t civilization. It doesn’t help that I can’t travel as fast I normally would, thanks to my injuries.
