One Day In Arizona


July 3, 2009

Today, I saw a Petrified Forest in Arizona.  There were tons of mineral logs EVERYWHERE, and they looked like a rainbow!  It was fun.



I also went to the Hubbell Trading Post.  It was boring until, guess what, I saw Jack again!  At the Trading Post, I got a Hopi Squash Kachina doll.  He has a really weird head.

Later, I went to a Meteor Crater, and got a dinosaur egg that grows in water.

Canyon De Chelly, Arizona


July 2, 2009

Today, I went on a jeep tour of Canyon De Chelly in Arizona.


I saw a pictograph of a horse. 


It was so fun because I snuck my DS, and I also made a new friend.  His name is Jack, and he has a big plush Pokemon collection too. When I get back from vacation, I want to get a Squirtle!

The jeep tour ended with a big splash of rain!  I’m starting to see a pattern.

Four Corners


July 1, 2009

I went to Four Corners and I stretched my arms and legs so that I was in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado.  It was so fun.  I felt bird (See Native American Symbols)

Mesa Verde National Park


June 30, 2009

Yesterday, I went to the Cliff Palace and Balcony House in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.  They are the homes of the ancient Indian pueblo civilizations.  The people who lived there must have been really athletic to get around their buildings because they had to climb cliff rocks and ladders to get to their farms from their homes. 


At the end of the day, I saw the most beautiful sunset that I have ever seen.
