She spoke with great knowledge of the information given, and had given great enthusiasm. She was kind and made going to Bandelier more interesting. At first I had felt that Bandelier was just going out into nature, seeing rocks, hiking; nothing to interesting. After not only her presentation but after attending, and seeing what was really there was far more interesting than what I had in mind. Knowing that people had lived there, in the rock caves was phonominal. The rooms were small, and I had no idea where they would even sleep, let alone have a whole tribe/ colony live there. Being abel to see plants that can heal, treat, kill and even be made out of tea was amazing. Being able to attend Bandelier showed me a whole new experience to not only their society and how they lived, but more of how we live today in our modern world.
I had observed a large amount of plants while hiking. Many were of multiple sizes, colors, and what they can do for you. The trees were large and full of leaves with marvelous colors. It was really just like being in the mountains. Below the trees were sand like dirt, the rock caves looked very fragile as it was made from an ashy like substance. The rock caves were not as fragile, they were hard as rock like intended. Living in these rock caves look to be very difficult to live in, they were small and hard. I think it would be even more difficult for a family to live in. Bandelier is so powerful in regaurdence to nature, and society. In having the rock caves still standing, and still able to climb in them was so outstanding.i think being able to know what others had to adapt to was hard to believe, only because I live in a much more easier society. They had to plant all of their food, make shelter, and find plants in which would suit them for their needs. Going to Bandelier relates to my essay because it really looks like a dream, you would never believe that there were people living there. It was a dream...
