By: Shannon B.

One time, my younger brother and I went to the creek in my backyard. My house is surrounded by vast woods, and in the woods, there is the beautiful creek. well, my father told me and my little brother we had one hour before we had to come back. It was a particularly cold day, so we put on tons of layers of clothes. We started our jouney to the creek. It took about 20 mins to get to the creek. We stayed there for a while, then started back. It was getting close to an hour so i was worryed my dad would freak out. On the way back we saw a huge dog run past us. I got really scared because i had never seen it before, but it didn't bother us. We made it home in time, but it was very exhilerating.
