Slide into Farron's Slippery Streams
Created by: Farron Paulk

Hello my name is Farron Paulk, and I am a junior at Valdosta State University. I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree from the Early Childhood and Reading Education Department.

    My particular interest is going on vacation to different places. I love to visit the Smokey Mountains. Cherokee, North Carolina is an Indian reservation with a town that has remained the same for decades. Tubing down the icey creek can be exciting when the waters are high. Tubing can only be done in the summer because the water can be freezing at other times. Floating down the trickling streams when the sun glows onto your skin feels refreashing. Hiking up the mountians is another alternative for spending the day. Chimney Tops is a rough mountain to climb; this mountain is three miles to the top and bottom. The veiw is worth the hike. There is also a stream located at the bottom. I actually measured the water in the middle of July and the temperature measured 50 degrees.

    I have traveled to many different areas. Some of these areas include the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park and  Niagra Falls. All of these places are exciting. In Yellowstone National Park snow can be found on the fourth of July. There are so many different interesting animals. In south Georgia it does not even snow in the winter, and cows are about the only animals that cross your path everyday.  Seeing the sun set over the Grand Canyon is certainly a sight to see. Pictures can't describe the feeling of actually being there. A boat at Niagra Falls rides up to the  edge where the fall meets the river. There have been many people that have rolled over the side and lived to tell about it. All the facts can be found in the museum located at the falls.
