    2. Great start just a couple of mistakes here and there. Today, our family went hiking at Dechutes National Rainforest and Smith Rock State Park. It took 2 hours from our house by car. My father told us that that there is a big volcano in the rainforest and that there was a forest fire caused by lightning this year. At the top of the mountain there was a strong wind making me feel cold. Our second destination contained a huge rock. I had never seen a rock this size before in my life. It took us half an hour from our first destination. Both locations are very popular in the state of Oregon and many locals and visitors go there.

It is also a good system to protect us from theft because the surrounding area at Eugene station is a little bit dangerous due to many homeless people. As a result, I have used this car twice!

    2. Today I want to talk about track and field in Oregon. Oregon is famous for track and field, so sometimes the representatives for the USA in the Olympics are decided here. I'm not sure, but Suguru Osako, who holds the Japanese record for marathon running, has a base to practice in Portland. I think the reason why this sport is popular in Oregon is because of the cool climate. I often see the people who are running in Eugene if it is sunny. Next year in spring, the Eugene marathon will take place here. Although I have no intention to join, I want to see the event.
