This is a little late. I am going to do my October in review.
My most exciting thing I did in October was a mountain trip to Sugar Mountain, which is near Boone, Banner Elk, and Blowing Rock.
We ended up hiking the trails of the Viaduct and Linville Falls.
The Viaduct was more complicated because it had a ton of mud and full of slippery rocks. So it was very easy to slip and fall, which I did twice. Below is a picture is a picture of the Viaduct. I love hiking because you are out in nature in the woods, and getting to the top is worth it due to the view. Don’t forget, our hike was a couple weeks after Hurricane Florence- so that was why there was all of the mud. The mud I saw was great inspiration for the mud found in Graysloup in my book- the less deep mud was closer to what is part of the main part of Graysloup while the thicker mud spots reminded me for “The Bog”- so it was great inspiration.
Linville Falls- it was not as dangerous hiking. It was hike with four different overviews. Three of them gave us a view of the waterfall. The first one gave us a few of the lower falls. The second one (I believe), gave us a view of the upper and lower falls. The next one we saw was known as the fourth overview just gave us view of a gorge. The third overview, which was the last one we looked at, gave us a view of everything.
Of course, October ended with Halloween. I wasn’t expecting to dress up. However, I ended up recycling my Rizzo jacket from Octoberfest from last year. By the way, Octoberfest at Gardner Webb is a Halloween festival for kids from the Boiling Springs and Shelby area. Each club picks a theme, and my club choose Grease: I was Rizzo. I kept the jacket- I borrowed the rest of the costume from a suite mate- thankfully with Halloween this year, I found a way to finish the costume. I used my black leggings and my mom’s black t-shirt and my Octoberfest pink Jacket from last year, which actually is a men’s hot pink button up t-shirt, which has Rizzo and Pink Ladies ironed on it.
Below is my costume from school, but is basically what I looked like this Halloween.
Can’t wait to finish November- exciting things have already happened.
