Baxter State Park — by Kanako

After our English immersion trip, I gave my students the task of writing about some of our experiences and the option of posting it online. Here is a wonderfully written account of Baxter State Park written by Kanako.

On the 3rd day of our trip, we went to Baxter State Park in Maine.
Although it was October, it was very cold, so we wore our down jackets!

When we first arrived at Baxter State Park, the beautiful colored leaves welcomed us!
The colors were very vivid shades of bright yellow and red.
What a beautiful sight!

Next, a big mountain welcomed us!
It was Mt. Katahdin.
It was covered with snow.
What a beautiful mountain!

While we were driving on the road through the park, the scenery became a wintery land!
The land and trees were covered with a thin layer of snow.
There was snow on the colored fallen leaves.
It seemed that fall and winter had become one.
It was interesting that we were able to see colored leave and snow together!

Suddenly, Mayumi screamed!
She saw two moose!!
And they saw us too!!
They had nice antlers.
They were very calm and went deeper into the inner part of the forest.

When we went a little more ahead, we were able to see a mother moose and her baby in an open field.
The baby moose followed the mother.
Their legs were long, skinny, and white.
They looked at us calmly, and then they went into the forest.
What an amazing experience!!!
How mysterious!!!
How beautiful!!!

We had a wonderful experience in Baxter State Park 🙂
