Today I learned...

Today I learned a lot of stuff from officer [Ranger] Johnson about the history we lived in, the Indians call[ed] Ahwahneechee. They lived here for thousands of years protecting their freedom from people. I love this trip about mountains and nature I never knew about the water down here is beautiful and clean. I saw all kinds of animals and trees, so I had a good day. Plan on working out when we go back to our cabins and then go to sleep.

Krystin and Robert listen intently as Ranger Shelton Johnson speaks

A good day

Today [I] had a good day, went for hike 6 miles. It was crazy but you got to be in shape whoever smokes [I] feel sorry

for them, but I had fun sleeping in a tent for a couple hours. It really is fun out here. [I] took a whole lot of pictures. The mountain is huge and hard to climb but it is easy. HAD FUN.

Quotes

"A SHIP IN THE HARBOR IS SAFE, BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT SHIPS ARE BUILT FOR."

A ship is built for traveling the world and extra transportation. It's really cool to ride on a boat and look at all kinds of towns and cities to go on vacation. I love a boat, you can also swim on the boat. Good food and sleep on the boat. Boats are built so you can learn about them just like cars so have a good time on the boats and don't fall over the boat because they do have a rescue team.
