    Blue Ridge cropped You tie your hiking boots in perfectly snug knots and gently stand up, brushing the pebbles off of your left knee. A deep breath of fresh air fills your lungs as your first step leads into the wilderness. The warm breeze smells like dirt, nature at its finest. Leaves crunch beneath your powerful feet and pebbles fling off the trail, scuttling to a slow stop. You march on. Thoughts of the office vanish from your mind and Thanksgiving stumbles in. Certainly, something you 're grateful for is this round, aged, beautiful earth that you have the freedom to trek along. Today is National Take a Hike Day. Nobody knows whether this day is designed for people to bellow "take a hike" to those who deserve it, or venture into the wilderness for some healthy, much-needed exercise.

Leaves transform from bright greens to light yellows and dark ambers before they shrivel and freeze off into the bone cold winter. Just a few months away marks the National Parks 100th birthday year!

    ideal American childhood. Now, consider my story. My childhood home, settled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, was equipped with a basketball hoop in the backyard and a minivan in the driveway. I grew up in a two-parent middle-class home with evenings spent at the dinner table waiting for Jeopardy to start; then, I would read my older brother’s comics or The Magic Tree House series until I couldn’t hold my eyes open. I was a tomboy for lack of a better word; a shy, reserved kid who had…

    Picture this: you wake up one morning thinking it’s just going to be a normal day, but then, everything changes.

You can’t grab anything to bring with you. All you have are the clothes and shoes that you have on, nothing more. Think about that. It almost seems too horrible to be true. But this did happen. It was called the…

    Essay One: Rough Draft Both Aleksandar Hemon and Eula Biss both argue that having a sense of belongingness to a community is important for people to feel, and I agree with that because having a place to call home can make someone feel like they are a part of something and makes them feel comfortable.
