CC Day 5-Mt. Rushmore, Black Hills, Devil’s Tower by Christina

Hi everyone this is Christina is blogging today! Yesterday we went to Mt. Rushmore and it was amazing to see the scratches on their faces from where they were carving. When we looked up through a cave you could see George Washington face through a crack. But you can only see it so much or eventually it loses its excitement.

When we were on our way to Devil’s Tower, we saw buffalo flooding the streets. They were everywhere. It was like you were in buffalo land. None were the same; there were babies and parents. Some were nice and some were mean, but the only thing you kept thinking was “What if? What if? What if?” After we finally got through the buffalo at one mile per hour, we finally got to Devil’s Tower.

Devil’s Tower looked like it was climbing its way to the sky. It’s a 1,000 feet tall and looks like a giant bear scratched the sides of it. Scientists believe that its leftover magma from a volcano core. When we were hiking around the tower we finally saw some people, a dad and his daughter. And of course as dad is he asks them to take a picture of our family. So we started talking with them and the girl was very nice. Her name was Kirsten and she’s going into 5th grade just like me. She seemed very nice and I hope we get to meet up with them again on their cross country road trip because we are going to alot of the same places.

Once we finally we got on our way to the hotel, there was a thunder and lightning storm. You could see the sunset through the thunderstorm. The sky was flaming bright orange and looked like it was on fire burning the land.

It was a great day and I miss you all.
