Travel Plans

 In November, my family and I decided to trek the redwoods. 

The fog, chirp of birds, and redwoods combined to create a calm, moist environment, like the cloud forests. 

 Just then, a buzzing noise caught our attention, and it started getting louder with each second. 

"What's that noise?" asked my son.    

We looked yonder and saw a grey cloud coming our way.

"Duck" was my instant command.

We gave way to them. The swarm of insects passed by us within seconds as if they were on a mission. 

They didn't bother us since we didn't disturb their travel plans. 

In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes tiny flying insects. Think about how the insects shape the scene or add to the action. Go where the prompt leads!

I've been there and it is awe-inspiring. I hope you had a wonderful trip.

Sometimes we just need to get out of the way! Great descriptive detail that adds to the action.
