One Day Of West Point

One day in November, we went to visit the United States Military Academy-West Point, which is famous all round the world. To be honest, I was even excited before going there, because I had heard quite a number of stories about American heroes, like General Patton and General Eisenhower, who graduated from  West Point.

In the morning, the weather was very good and we drove a car that we had rented before that day. Fortunately it was a smooth flow of traffic and it took us almost 45 minutes to reach our destination- West Point. First we bought a ticket at the entrance of the camp and then we looked around the museum of  West Point while we waited for the tour bus. The tour guide, a humorous old  guy, was very kind to introduce the history and the sights of  West Point.There was a small lake in the camp which was like a mysterious spot when sunshine was on the lake.

Actually the most beautiful scenery was the river bend with the red leaves of the trees, and it seemed like  I was in a world of color to go with the flow of the river. I loved the autumn at West Point and took plenty of pictures for myself.The last thing our tour guide told us was how hard it was for the camp to be established and the war between Britain and the US.

It was an unforgettable memory for me.
