Three American students are talking about how they would like to spend their summer holiday.

Anna : It’s hot and humid in New York City in the summer and I often feel depressed then. So in July and August I often go out of the city to the west where there are some beautiful national parks and forests. I often go with my friends, and we spend about two weeks in a national park every year. We might stay at campgrounds in the park, but wilderness areas are more fun. What we enjoy most is to ride our dirt bike in the desert, take showers in waterfalls and swim in lakes and rivers. And at night we sleep in our sleeping bags or tents and cook on our gas stove. It’s wonderful that we can live in nature and enjoy it.

Terry : I used to go to the mountains, the desert, and the other places with spectacular scenery in summer. I don’t any more, although I’m still attracted to the beauty of nature. But I do think these natural places aren’t as beautiful as they used to be. Now more and more people are going to these places. They leave trash in the forests, and take rocks and plants with them. They don’t care about nature. I believe not only people are important to the world – nature is important, too.

Mary : Like most other people I’m very fond of natural spectacular scenery, but when I travel, I spend most of my time in cities. Why I don’t want to live in nature and enjoy it? It’s the solitude of the wilderness. It’s for animals and plants, not for me. I hate camping, too. I can’t put up an umbrella tent in the wind. I can’t make a fire in the rain, and a backpack is usually Too heavy for me. So I’d better stay in the cities and enjoy the comfort they offer.
