In June I will be going to a national park called Yosemite for a camping trip. I will be going with a group of campers from camp Kern that’s located in Santa Cruz. I will take the bus from west Sacramento to Santa Cruz on Monday. Then, on Tuesday we head off to Yosemite Valley and stay there for a week. We will go hiking, fishing, and swimming in a lake. We will hike in the lower and higher part of Yosemite Valley. We will have counselors to guide the hiking trips and we will sleep in tents or cabins in Yosemite. We will focus on finding wildlife for food like rabbits, fish, and deer – maybe even Tarantula spiders! Then on Saturday we will head home to Sacramento, CA. I will have the “terrible horrible threesome” with me on this adventure. That is my group of stuffed animals.
I like Yosemite National Park because it’s a cool place and has lots of waterfalls and nice trails including Halfdome. This will be my first time going to Yosemite National Park. It will be fun seeing nature and wildlife like bears and rabbits.
When I go to Yosemite I will need to bring a lot of stuff.
Long sleeves /short sleeves
Tennis shoes/hiking boots
Books/stuffed animal zest
Pepperspray/whistle bug spray repellent
I can’t wait for my trip!
