Uphill downhill 20 miles

Image
 This hike was hard and one we got ready for the most, maybe. And it almost didn’t happen! Before the hike, the guys tried to get  a campsite but many campsites were not ready because of storms, closed camping, or too many campers. Finally, after much looking, the guys found a 20-mile trail camping near an old Fort in West Texas. The camping spot had water but no electricity, but that's ok. The trailhead was near our campsite which was great! The next morning the guys started to hike after eating some oatmeal and toast. I went with them. We hiked up and over a big and tall mountain. It took time to hike up the mountainside (only 3 miles!). The next 5 miles were even higher! When we got to a town called Fort Davis, we came down the mountain into an old fort where I saw cabins and canons. The guys were thirsty. We had just a little bit of water and it was very far until the next water stop. Finally, we got back to our campsite for lunch and to drink a lot of water. Then we left to go

A Day at Texas Memorial Museum

Image
Hello, my name is Moose and I like adventures!  A proper play place that's close to where I live in Texas is the Texas Memorial Museum.  It is fun to visit because you can see animals from the past and some that roam around today!  My friend, Catholic Camper, and I visited one hot day.  The museum was cool inside and was so big that I had to open my eyes wide to see everything.  The entrance was on the 2nd floor.  When I looked up, I saw a giant Dinosaur hanging from the ceiling. Around the room, there were a lot of diamonds and jewels! Some are small, others very big! They come in lots of different colors such as red, yellow, blue, green and so much more! When we walked downstairs to the 1st floor I saw animals that didn't move.  Catholic Camper said they were models and not real.  Some were from the early years of the world.  Other animals, like the Cotton Tail Rabbit, you can still see today.  Still, other animals such as the Buettneria Perfecta you don’t see today because o

A Hidden Gift

Nestled in the piney woods of East Texas is a phat trail known for early 19th century logging and the Big Slough Wilderness Area. The 4C Hiking Trail stretches along a system of old abandoned tramways. It's a point-to-point 20 mile trail left by the Central Coal and Coke-a-Cola company which log there in 1920. Today it's barely noticeable as much of the forest has reclaimed its territory.   Hiking this trail after Christmas was a gift.  Spending time alone with my family while exploring new things is a sport I enjoy.  Although, we only finished15 miles, the excursion brought us closer and we visioned further than our last adventure.

Everyone Belongs

Image
I like books.  I like the way they smell and how the pages make funny noises when I turn them.  I like to read and to be read to. What's your favorite book?  Recently, my family read a new book to me and it made me sad, but then happy.  The title is  “Everybody Belongs” and is a story about two friends named Sam and Ray. Sam and Ray are best friends. They hang out with each other, have sleepovers, and play on the same soccer team. Ray is new to the city and finds Sam as a new friend. But, not everyone in town is fine with that. Later in the story, Ray and his family fall victim to hate speech and a vandalous crime. Sam is not ok with this. And with the help of his school friends and teacher, Sister Bridget, they help the Ikanga Family recover and amend this hateful crime. "Everyone Belongs" is a good story for you to read or for someone special to read it to you.

Moose in New Mexico

I woke up early and the sun wasn’t even out yet! We are loading the truck and that means it’s time for another trip! This time, we are gonna go to New Mexico! I've never been to New Mexico. My family tells me that it's different from Texas and much cooler. It's midnight and the trip is long, so I'm going back to sleep! "Wake up Moose!" Catholic Camper said, "we arrived in New Mexico!" I am so glad I got to sleep on this part of the trip! It was definitely long! Right now we stopped to get some gas for our truck. Already the outside world is much different! It's dustier and more like a desert! The towns are farther apart as well! The trees are brown and green, the sky looks different. So far, I like New Mexico! After a couple more hours, we find our first camping spot! The campsite is just off of a mountain road. It is in a large meadow of tall green trees between mountains! It is so nice here and the temperature is cooler! I might have to ruffle
