I use to go down the pier all the time when i lived in washington, and catch little hermit crabs and starfish off the rocks. I would just observe them a little, give them a name and let them go. There were also these little tiny jellyfish that looked like clear slime, and they hung around the surface of the water near the boating docks. You couldnt catch them, because they would die easily so i left them alone.
I use to always go down into a gully all the time where there was a big rope swing tied to a very high branch of a tree. It was so much fun, we would climb up the hill and then hop on the rope swing and go flying down and over a creek and then back. It went pretty high and was kind of dangerous, but it was too much fun! I had fallen off it once and landed on the rocks in the creek. That was a little painful but i got right back on the thing!
I visited a zoo in tacoma washington(its very stinky there!) on my 12th birthday, called the point cliance zoo. I got to see polar bears, peackocks, fat seals, huge sharks..we fed the peacocks animal crackers :)
I got to visit two entrances to Yellowstone National park. The one here in Montana, then the one in Wyoming. In the Montana one, i got to see a wolf inclosure and a grizzly bear inclosure. The wolf imclosure had a deck that you could stand on and look down at all the wolves. The seemed very fearful of us and i felt so bad for them! The grizzly bear inclosure contained two big fat furry grizzlies and they were cute as can be. They sat on there butts and tried breaking the ice with there front legs by pushing on it. It was so cute! We had also got to see a littke arctic fox, and it was so small it looked like a little puppy! In the wyoming entrance of yellowstone, we got to to see old faithful the guyser, and we got to hike to see a huge waterfall. We walked on a board walk across a feild of stinky smelling water, and waded down the yellowstone river. We had also got to see the huge yellowstone lake that was a beautiful bluish color!
we went to the louis and clark caverns here in montana. We had to hike up the side of a mountain on a paved path to get there but it was worth it! The cave was so scary inside! There were several times i wanted to leave but i had no choice! We had weave and make our way through tight crawl spaces, i bumped my head several times even after the guide told us to watch our heads everytime we were about to enter a small space. He showed us cool rock formations that when he shown his flashlight on them, they casted a shadow that looked like things. It was very eery and dark and chilly in there! And there were bats!
