A long Vacation


            As I sat in the backseat of a rental car, next to my sister who was .
             sleeping, I looked out the window and thought, “who in their right minds .
             would want to live here?” My family and I were on our summer vacation. .
             Five days in Denver, Colorado for my dad’s veterinary convention, then off .
             to the Badlands, Yellowstone National Park, and the Grand Titons. We were .
             going into our sixth day and I knew the fun part of our vacation was over.
             .
             In Denver there is lots to do. We went to Six Flags, ate out at nice.
             restaurants, saw country singer Phil Vasser perform and Red Rock, and .
             stayed in a really nice hotel. The second we started driving through the .
             Rocky Mountains, I knew I was in for a long and boring next twelve days. .
             How I knew this, you probably wonder? My cell phone told me. It plainly .
             said, “no service.” So much for letting my friends rescuing me. I was stuck. .
             Stuck in the middle of nowhere just my parents, my younger sister, and me. .
             Okay, so maybe we weren’t in the middle of nowhere. We were in the .
             Rocky Mountains. And it’s not like we were the only ones out there. .
             Apparently my parents aren’t the only ones who obsess over taking pictures.
             of trees and rocks up humongous hills. We stopped at just about every look-.
             out point, which was about every three-fourths of a mile. You can imagine .
             how long it took for us to get out of the mountains. It felt like forever to me. .
             I got out at a couple of the stops. At one of the look-out points there were .
             tons of mountain elk. They’re beautiful animals, and we saw them just about.
             everywhere we went. Of course, my parents had to get pictures of every .
             single elk we saw. Take my word for it. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen .
             them all. .
             .
             The next big adventure was visiting the Badlands, which was in South .
             Dakota. We met up with my grandparents there and they spent the rest of the.
             vacation with us. The Badlands were actually kind of fun.
