An Amazing Adventure

Two to three years back my friends and I had an idea of hiking up on a mountain. We filled our backpacks with delicious snacks and water. We were ready to leave from our home. We beckoned our hands when we left. It took 3 hours to reach the medium sized mountain. It was 8: 10 am in the morning. We started hiking at 8 : 15. I had a camera with me. My friend Sam wrote mysterious fact. We hiked for an hour. So we took our break. We finished our break in 10 min. After 2 to 3 hours we were all exhausted and tired. So we took half an hour break. We started to move on. Suddenly! We heard a howling sound by a fox. In our backpacks we had a round shaped wood. We lit the woods which we had in or hands. I was so scared but my friends were opposite. We saw the fox. It was in front of us. We showed the woods that we lit by fire. The fox went back. We had a long stick which had a knife on the end. My friend Root was brave. Went near it and slashed it on the fox neck. We moved on we saw a herd of elephants. Our life was in big danger. We went by an another way which was too long to reach the mountain. We finally reached the mountain peak. It was a spectacular view of the city. I just couldn’t believe I did it. I thought it was dream. I pinched myself. It pained. So it was really true. We stood there and took rest for 3 to 4 hours on the hill of the mountain. We laboriously got down from the mountain. It was an amazing, happy and scareful adventure. It was an unforgettable day in my life. The End
