the end of the rope. “Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade, and yet the menace of the years finds and shall find me unafraid”- Invictus like in the poem Invictus, I was no longer afraid. I overcame my new found fear of heights and easily walked back on the same tightrope and back to the earth. That was enough excitement for me in one day.
After my incident at the cave of the winds, our next trip of the vacation was the famous pikes peak. It is one of the tallest mountains in Colorado at 14,100 feet, as well as the second most visited mountain in the world. When we arrived at the top, the air was so heavy I almost couldn’t breath, and that made the view literally breath taking. I never felt so amazed in my entire life. I’ve never seen anything like it. “That living word awakened my soul, gave it light, hope, joy, set it free! There were still barriers still, it is true, but barriers that could in time be swept away” -Everything has a name. my experience when I went to Pikes Peak was comparable to when Hellen Keller discovered the beauty in the world. I felt the same way when I looked down at the earth miles below me. I felt like I was on top of the world. It was the best day of my life.…

infamous traitor General James Wilkinson, have given Zebulon a well-deserved reputation for
pitiable-luck . A direct descendant of early colonial politician and settler John Pike, Zebulon

the water and land back in with a splash, and then dart away. However, it wouldn't be much longer before I could reel the fish in close enough for my grandfather to dip in the metallic net and scoop the fish out. But when the fish did get close enough, it was massive and much larger than it looked from far away when it first jumped out of the glistening water. We pulled the fish in the boat and took a good amount of pictures before returning it to the water. My grandfather said “wow That…
