To the left is a road to a sandy beach with the roaring sound of waves crashing on the sand. Seagulls cry a warning up above at the sight of food. Fins rise out of the sea, attached to sleek grey colored dolphins jumping out of the shining deep blue waters.


To the right is an open field with a tall snowy capped mountain in the distance, misty clouds surround the pointed tip. The field is brimming with life, bugs buzz as they are in search of food or just lazily flying around, birds chirp and sing, their songs being carried on the cool summers breeze through the stalks of grass. A doe frolics through the weeds with her young fawn, teaching him the ways of the wild.


Straight up ahead of you is a forest, pines stretch and reach the sky while by the banks of a creek willows weep. Squirrels chase each other through the trees, playing while trying to find acorns to store for the coming winter storm. As the night arrives you can hear wolves howl at the new full moon, their yellow eyes glowing in the dark as they are in the search of prey to bring to their feast.


Now here is the real question, which way will you choose?
