Transcript of The place that I would want to go on this road trip is the R

Rocky Mountain National Park
The place that I would want to go on this road trip is the Rocky Mountain National Park. I would want to go there because I don’t want to go to a city. I think that cities are just big places that don’t sound interesting, also none of the cities I thought of sounded appealing. The next reason I would want to go is because my mom has been there before, she says that it’s really beautiful. Those are the reasons that I would want to go to Rocky Mountain National Park.
The Park
The Rocky Mountain National Park is in northern Colorado, about 1h and 33min from Denver. It has 415 square miles of land that make up the park, and in the park there are five different regions with different types of landscapes, the lakes and easy hiking, back country trails, tundra, meadows, and wilderness. In the park you can see wildlife and plants on hiking trails, and roads that go throughout the park. There are also visitor centers around the park. You can sleep in Estes park or Grand lake, which are around the park. You can stay in one of the campgrounds, or just camp in the park’s wilderness.
Roads

On some of the parks roads you can see the park’s scenery and wildlife from a car or any other transportation device. Some of these roads are the Trail Ridge Road, and Old Fall River Road. Out of these two roads, the Trail Ridge Road is probably the most well known, it’s 48 miles long, crosses the Divide, and goes through three regions, the Wilderness, the Tundra, and the Meadows. From this road you can see the Rockies, the Great plains, and Wyoming. That’s just the Trail Ridge Road though, the eleven mile long Old Fall River Road also has some beautiful scenery to look at too.
Activities
If you plan to come Rocky Mountain National Park there are a lot of different things that you can do like hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, fishing, scenic drives, and wildlife watching. If you want you can take shuttle bus rides where you can see around the East side of the park, but not the West side. There are also winter activities like skiing (cross-country), sledding, ice skating, and snowshoeing. If you don’t have your own equipment for winter activities you can purchase or rent stuff at Grand Lake or Estes park.
The Nissan Versa
The car that I would choose for this road trip is the Nissan Versa. I’d choose this because it does not use too much gas. The Nissan Versa does not have the most mileage of all the cars to choose, but it does have 11 gallons per tank. It can go 41 miles per gallon, that’s the most out of all the cars. Another reason it’s a good car is because it’s money efficient. If you only have to fill your tank with 11 gallons instead of around 17 then you pay less per tank, and drive longer. That’s why the Nissan Versa is the best car for this long drive and just the best out of all of them.
Road Trip
My Route
My route to Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park from Twinfield Union School in Vermont will be a 2,189 mile long trip that will take 5 days if I drive a grueling 500 miles a day. On my route to the Rocky Mountain National Park I’ll go through Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Colorado. On the way there I will stop at the Statue of Liberty in New York city, Chicago in Illinois, Des Moines in Iowa, and for the last two stops, Denver and Boulder in Colorado.
