When we crossed what used to be the creek, we saw cattails. Cattails can grow up to 3 to 10 feet long. Cattails are one of the most common plants that grow at the edge of ponds. My Grandma knew a lot of things about Cattails. She opened a Cattail and there were seeds inside it. My Grandma gave everybody a couple of seeds and told us to blow on them so each seed would fly away and grow into a new Cattail.
As we continued to walk down the river bed, we saw an interesting bug. It was orange and had a blue bottom. We walked so much that everybody became very hungry. Then we sat on a log and ate our lunches. After eating lunch, it was time to go back to our car. On the way back, we saw a hawk soaring high above us looking for food. We had an amazing day and came home very tired.
Have you ever gone hiking in the mountains?
