have ever seen, Beartooth Mountain. The first time I see the
mountain I am astounded anything could possibly be so immense. The sun catches the snow at
the top of the mountain shooting light down into the Valley below. Then my view slides down
the mountain, numerous pine trees seem to wrap around the entire mountain like a child in their

thirty mile hike. Right now you probably think I’m crazy for hiking up mountains for thirty miles! But I will never forget the experience of the beauty of the Sawtooth mountains and spending time with my grandpa. Also, I will never forget the massiveness of the three ridges we had to climb up. That was definitely not my favorite part of the hike.
The hike started out at a lake called Pedit Lake, then we went to a few other mountain lakes before we got to beautiful Redfish lake, our destination.…

This collision created another mountain range located in the same place where the Grenville Mountains and Taconic Mountains were formed.

This land piece was called Avalon. Avalon was believed to have broke apart from Proto-Africa. When Baltica hit North America, the mountain range created when the Avalon and the…

Rock and debris fly through the air. The quiet and peaceful forest which once accommodated numerous different animals is now a biological wasteland suffering from a devastating method of coal collection called strip mining. Humans leave numerous amounts of destruction in their wake, whether it be on a small or large scale.

It’s these attributes of the Mountain Gorilla that help them while in their habitat, the high altitude rainforest biome in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, and Rwanda. These are very biodiverse places, being home to countless species such as endangered Mountain Gorillas and stinging nettle who depend and work “hand in hand” with nonliving cycles like the water cycle and abiotic factors like temperature to create a thriving ecosystem. Everything is…
