11 Questions Tag

I was tagged by @love-allthingsmarvel :) 

Rules:

a) Always post the rules, answer the questions asked then write 11 new. 

b) Tag 11 people and link them to the post. Tell the person who tagged you that you’ve answered their questions. 


1. Which is your favorite scar, and what’s the story behind it?

Definitely the one on my knee from when I fell off a tree. Basically, my family was in the Sequoia’s on vacation and my mom dared me to climb up a fallen tree that was probably about 20 ft high. I use to rock climb a lot during high school, so of course I accepted the dare and climbed up. As soon as I got up, I realized that I had no idea how to get back down. I got my scar when I tried sliding down the 20 ft tree – my foot slipped and I slammed onto an outstretched root. My other scratches have healed but the (worse) one on my knee has turned into a scar. It’s one of my favorite stories to tell people honestly.

2. Favorite food, and your favorite place to get it?

Pasta. My mom makes AMAZING linguine with clams, but usually any restaurant that has pasta on the menu.

This is General Sherman, also known as the largest tree in the world. Located in Sequoia National Park in California, General Sherman is a giant sequoia who is, by volume, the largest known living single stem tree in the world. Although it is neither the tallest, oldest, nor widest tree in the world, it is the thickest by volume.
