LL: Yosemite was fantastic. You really should go sometime, Li Hua. I know you would be completely blown away by the scenery.
LL: No, no. By "blown away" I mean you would be astounded. When something blows you away, it amazes you.
LH: 噢，blown away 在这里指的是感到惊异，吃惊。对了，我看到过约塞美蒂国家公园的照片。照片上的风景就让我惊叹不已了。
LL: But being there in person is so much more amazing. You won't believe how high some of the waterfalls are; when you go, it will blow you away!
LL: I am sure I will be blown away. I've heard friends who have been to Huang Shan and talk about it, and it does sound amazing.
LL: I sure do. Before I left, my uncle came by and gave me a new camera to take with me to Yosemite. I was blown away by his generosity.
LL: Yes, sometimes when someone does something unexpectedly nice, it really blows you away.
LL: You know, the scenery was beautiful, but I was also blown away by the number of tourists at Yosemite.
LL: Li Hua，I was also blown away by some of the stupid things people would do in the park!
LL: Well, there was one guy who was feeding the deer. What a bone head!
LH: 给鹿吃东西？公园里一般都不让大家给动物吃东西。你说bone head，你是指那头鹿头上有骨头？谁头上没有骨头呀？
LL: No, I mean the guy who fed the deer was a bone head. A bone head is someone who has no brains and does something really stupid.
LH: 嗯，bone head就是没有脑筋的人，所以你是指那些给鹿吃东西的人没有脑子。对了，我听说鹿应该在他们所在的栖息地自己找东西吃。
LL: Yes, there are thousands of tourists who come to Yosemite every day. If everyone fed them, the deer would probably get fat and sick!
LL: Exactly. Not picking up your trash just spoils the view for others and is bad for the environment.
LL: That still seems like a bone-headed excuse to me. You can carry your trash until you find a park trash can or bring it with you to your car.
LL：I wonder why don't parks give out trash bags to everyone who comes into the park, Li Hua, Do you think that would prevent littering?
LH: Larry，这才是个好主意呐！ 公园应该给每个来公园玩的人发一个垃圾袋，这样人们就不会随地扔东西了。
LL：In fact, there are some parks in the U.S. that do that.
LL：So, I had a good idea! I guess that means you don't think I'm a bone head!
今天李华学到了两个常用语。一个是blown away，意思是惊叹，惊奇。另一个常用语是bone head，意思是没有脑筋的人。
