How is Sequoia National Park different from home?


There are many different things here in the Sequoia National Park than back home. In the Park it is quiet and so beautiful. There are a lot of Green plants that is so relaxing. And back at home everything is loud there's a lot of people and car.

I had no idea that a lot of the things that we do back at home like the cars and the fire place was affecting the air we are affecting the planet, animals and even ourselves.

Imagine what it would be like to be like to be one of the first people to live in the park.


I think that the sequoia trees were very important to the Indians to build their homes. I think that the Indian childrens most of had a lot of fun they would had a lot of spaces to play and they would not worry avout school or clothes, but it would also be hard to find food. I wondered how did they keep warm if it is very cold up here.

I had never hike will snow was fulling, so yeasterday was my first time it was fun, but when we were going to sleep, I couldn't sleep. I was too cold and I feeled like going back home with my family. Today we got to see the biggest tree in the world the interesting. What I learned from yeasterday was that I should never go camping in October because it is too cold. SInce I have been here I have seen a bear, 4 deers and like 4 types of biers.

Today is a good day we are campiong in ladybug camp. It is warm and there is a river by it. I think that where we are camping right now is better than where we were camping on Tuesday because the weather is better in ladybug camp, so we could do more things. I think I did a good choice by camping on this trip because I got to see and learned about trees and plants.
