You live in the mountains? Like... there's only mountains everywhere around you?
If so, that's pretty cool!
haha yep having lived in the tropics all my life I can say that I'm happy of not having to deal with snow but I'm sure the first time I get to see snow is going to epic
I also like the idea of going camping in one of those states but I've never been camping before and frankly it seems a tiny bit scary.
Yeah, we're in the pocono mountains. Technically, we're in a valley surrounded by mountains (where I grew up about 40 miles from here was really in the mountains). So everywhere you look (and drive, for a couple of hours at least) there are mountains.
Though... the poconos are some of the oldest mountains in the country, so even though they're called mountains, we joke that they're more like hills
They roll more than poke and point. But I'm used to this, and even when I lived in Guatemala it was all mountains (even though THOSE are more pointy than these, it was nearly the same feeling). You can imagine then, that my biggest culture shock was going to visit my friend in Texas a few years ago.... and.... we had a 4 hour long FLAT and STRAIGHT drive!
I was in aw that such a road even existed in the world, lol.
2 times when I was living abroad there were freak hail storms, and 1 time my husband called me from work to look at the volcano (we lived at the feet of a dormant/dead volcano) because snow had capped it. And that was the first time I saw snow in 4 years. But... there is a place there higher in elevatin called San Marcos that has had snowfalls a couple of times this decade, and people travel from all over the country to see what it's like
Oh yeah, imagine camping as a little girl with your grandparents... and you're sharing a tent with your cousin... who wakes you up because there is a bear outside growling, and what does she do? SHOVES you outside the tent to go check it out
In the end it was my grandfather SNORING, hahahaha... but still..... she was pretty quick to feed me to the bear! hahahaha
