Dear Malcolm,
I'm here to tell you about my walk up the mountain, Snowdon.
After school I rushed home because my friend was picking us up after school. It took us three hours to get there. Once we were there we went for food. Since we didn't stop through the journey we had to go for food. Once we got back to the hotel I went straight to sleep since I had a big day the next day.


The next day, I was up and getting ready. For breakfast we went to Weatherspoons for a joyfull breakfast. While everyone was getting there I put on my walking boots and waited for everyone to get there. I felt excited to get started because I had my Mom and brother; also scared because I knew it was going to take ages. Off we set to climb the mountain.



At first it started with a few hills and then when we got to the start of the mountain we took a few photos. Me and my football team mates, tried to stick together, but we ended up splitting up. When we got to the halfway house we stopped for the toilet and an ice cream. 

When we came to a massive hill I was shattered but I was not about to stop. After that hill there was another massive hill. Me and my friend were terrified because we are scared of heights and you could see over it. We just didn't look down. 

When we made it to the top it was freezing. We were that high we were in the clouds.I had a picture right at the top and went to the shop there. i got a stress ball to play football with my brother. It took us three hours and thirty minutes. On the way down it was much quicker and not as hard. 

When we got back down we went back to the hotel and me and my brother watched TV in the hotel. Eventually me and my brother went to bed. In the morning we set off home. When I was home I went straight to sleep.
That's my story of me climbing Snowdon,
yours sincerely, Holly,
 aged 11
