This Is A Descriptive Essay About A Ski Trip.

785 words - 3 pages

I remember sitting in that ski lift chair watching myself rising further away from the ground every second, and getting closer to the beautiful clear skies that were in the background. As the chair went up I saw this beautiful view of people coming down this huge hill with their big coats and these trees right ahead of them. From my standpoint, they looked like professionals.

I was so excited and scared at the same time, speeding down the hill so fast that I thought I might just lose control and hit a tree.
