I used to go on hikes with my dad when I was a little girl in Bulgaria. We had a tiny house in the mountains where we would go in the summer. He taught me how to recognize different trees and mushrooms. Also, my favorite bodies of water are lakes and bubbling brooks which tend to be in wooden mountain areas. I went on a hike when I was around 7 or so, I remember it was a hilly area and there were lots of trees. My dad had to go to the bathroom and so he told me to wait for him on the trail. He went off for what felt like forever. I was getting scared and remember calling for him but he couldn't hear me. I thought a bear got him, but he eventually emerged from the hills. He explained to me that he couldn’t hear me because he was behind a hill and the sound couldn’t get to him. He ended up teaching me about how sound waves move through space and interact with different objects.
