First Few Days With SoCool
In Rocky Mountain National Park at 12,000 feet above sea level.
On the first day we drove a lot. We had a passenger with us. Her name is Chanti, but we nicknamed her "Spot", because she used calamine lotion on her arm and it looked like spots. It took 5 hours to get to the South Dakota border from River Falls. We saw a lot of giant animals. We saw dinosaurs, steer, buffalo, elk and jackalope. Nebraska has lots of corn. Kool Aid was created in Hastings, NE. We ate popcorn as a snack in the van it was good. It was from Nebraska.
When we went to the arches in Utah, it was very hot outside.We got to climb on the arches. The Rocky Mountains were cold and it was hard to breath. We played in the snow in the mountains. The elevation was over 12,000 feet above sea level. I was scared. I wanted to get down off the mountains.
This is me riding a buffalo.
The first night we camped at Cold Brook campground in Hot Springs, SD. The next night, we were at Sonya's house in Grand Junction, CO. We are going to see the Grand Canyon today, or maybe tomorrow. After we left Sonya's, we traveled to Utah and camped at a KOA in Richfield, UT.
We swam in Colorado at High Line Lake, Lilly bumped her head so we had to leave. We were at the hospital emergency room for a long time. We also saw red rocks. It looked like rock. It had a flag on top. We went hiking and saw cactus.
