sound of rushing water crashing upon the surface of rocks sounds unfamiliar to
me. I live in San Francisco, ďthe City by the Bay,Ē as some people call it. But
guess what? I barely get to see that bay!!! Iíve been in nature a few times.
The closest to nature Iíve gotten to recently is my garden. I really want to
know what itís like to take in the feel of nature.
I heard the
Tuolumne River is a place where you can admire nature, touch the plants, and go
fly fishing. I think Iíve gone fishing once, but that was six years ago when my
uncle took me, but heís not around anymoreÖ
by the length of the Tuolumne River. 162 miles! Thatís over 855,000 feet long!
Has anyone ever walked along it and made it to the end of the river before? Iíd
be amazed if someone did!
important to conserve water. We should use rain barrels to save water and use
the collected water for our gardens. We can do this at home and at school too!
Water is a
very valuable resource. If we use a lot of water in a short period of time, the
water cycle canít work fast enough to give enough water back.
I want to
hike on the damp dirt and watch the water look like smoke as it evaporates. I
want to know what hikers do by the river on breaks. Sit down? Read? Relax in
the shade of a tree? I want to know! But most of all, I want to know how it
feels to hike 162 miles in a hikerís boots.
