The whole trip started out in our home state, Arizona. We first headed to Flagstaff to climb Humphrey, the tallest mountain in Arizona. The winds where crazy! We had to hide behind rock piles to make it. At the top, I yelled “I’m at the top of Arizona”. It was amazing!
After that, we went to Silverton, Colorado. During our stay, we ran Silverton 12-hour. Teagan and I both did a 50 km., which is 31 miles. It was hard, but fun. We camped, and had a lot of fun. We also crewed Jamil as he ran Hardrock which I helped with. During the race, Teagan,my dad, and I climbed Handies The Helpful [14000 foot mountain], which we attempted last year, but did not make. After Hardrock, we left Silverton.
We where on the road again. While we where driving we climbed a few fortieners, all hard , but all beautiful and fun. A few that I remember are “Red Cloud The Struggle” and “Massive The Wild”. I gave these mountains names that describe them so I hope I do not have to explain. I had fun on both amazing, exciting, and glorious mountains.
Then came the buffalo, or to say, Yellowstone. We saw many glorius animals in the park. We saw bison, moose, elk, deer, even a baby black bear. It was a glorious few days.
Then we where in Washington state where we saw some friends. Then we went to Portland ZOO where we saw many amazing animals, like polar bears, penguins, black bears, crocodiles, monkeys, apes, and humans.
Then we where down the coast with a few stops. We soon reached Camp Pinniped. Our camp is at a marine mammal society that rescues seals and sea lions. We do many amazing things there. Then we went to Disneyland. We had lots of fun going on rides.
During our stay in Anaheim [our hotel], my mom saw a feral, long hair cat that was adorable. We just had to catch him. After a while of following him around, we finally rescued him. We thought at first that he was a girl, but we figured out in Phoenix that he was a boy. We kept Percy [our cat] in our hotel room, even if we weren’t supposed to.
Then, well, here we are. Home at last.
