After traveling along the Yellow Highway along Shaanxi for more than 50 kilometers, I came to Hukou Waterfall, the world's first yellow waterfall known as the soul of the nation. After crossing the Hukou Yellow River Bridge, I came to Jixian County, Shanxi Province, and passed through a tall archway. I saw the yellow waterfall far away and faintly heard the roar of the majestic. We stood in the mouth of the rushing pot. Before the big waterfall. I saw the yellow giant rushing from the distance, the vastness, the majestic, the unstoppable, I can't help but think of Li Bai's famous poem "The Yellow River is coming up in the sky and running to the sea." At the foot of the Yellow River, the huge currents were suddenly shrunk, the rivers gathered, and rushing into the deep pool, suddenly splashing the waves of the sky, as if a god was carrying a giant pot and dumping the source. Endless water of the Yellow River. For a time, my heart was deeply shocked. The Yellow River in front of him is roaring, roaring, screaming, huge waves rolling, and the sound of the waves is soaring, and there is a great shock and turmoil. At this moment, my feet are thrilling waves, and the ear is a deafening roar. Look at the waterfall, it seems like the river is over the sea, the turbid waves are empty, and the force is irresistible. The turbidity of the rushing down, all my senses were conquered, only the yellow waterfall in the eyes rushed, and only the surging waves in the chest were lingering. Standing in front of the Great Falls, my soul was immediately washed clean by this day! Its no wonder that the ancients like to write poetry here, this is my longing for life!
