This past summer I went to the Dominican Republic for a family vacation for two and a half weeks. As we explored different parts of the island, we decided to stay in this beautiful mountain called “Lomas Linda.” Lomas Linda is known for its unique mountains, diversity in mountain and flowers. While we were in the mountains I felt the cool wind. We went on long drives that led us to a natural river, and we went to one of the biggest orchid collections in the world.
The Dominican Republic is known for having beautiful mountains. My family and I decided to make our trip unforgettable by going to the mountains. When we arrived I can just feel the wind on my face. Surrounded by pine, and oak trees, purples, green, and pink flowers. We stayed in

We hopped into our green SUV with our windows rolled down and made our way to our next adventure. As my dad started driving, the road got bumpier and bumpier as we went on. It was like going up and down a rollercoaster. We made our way up the mountain for about two hours. I stuck my head out the window to be able to feel the cool mountain wind against my face.

There was actually a pool in the middle which made the place look more attracting in my opinion. The orchids were in all types of wonderful colors ranging from yellow, green, red, purple, pink, and blue. As we walked around this wonderful place I couldn’t stop taking pictures. I was so fascinated by all the different types of orchids that were there that I didn’t even know existed. “According to a many Orchid specialists, this place holds the biggest collection of orchids in the world” informed us the very nice man who was giving us a little tour around the orchids. The whole mountains and orchid scenery looked beautiful all
