Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.

One of the most memorable places for me was when me and my best friend cross country road tripped from the east coast to the west coast. We stopped in several different states, but my all-time favorite was this huge valley we camped at in Ouray, Colorado. The sunset, stars, and sunrise were so vivid and beautiful.
