Hi Blog followers! Liv here (aka Girl). This post is about Mount Lassen. I hope you like it!
When I first got to Mount Lassen I noticed that the trees were mossy. I loved the sound of the river rushing. It sounded like it was going really fast. I’ve never seen blackish and orange-ish lava rocks before. I learned that these rocks are in the area because a long time ago there was a volcano that erupted. When the lava cooled, the rocks were formed. The lava rocks had lots of holes in them.
We went on a really cool hike and after the hike we went down to the river to cool off and fish. It took a lot of casts, but I caught my first fish! But the truth was, I was really creeped out by the fish once it caught my line. It was massive! You’d be surprised! My fish was one foot long. My dad held it, and I did my best to stay away from him. My heart was beating so fast and I was whimpering to myself. It was cool to catch my first fish, but scary to see the fish flopping around.
The morning we were leaving I peaked out of my tent window. I saw two big animals. At first I thought they were coyotes but they turned out to be jackrabbits. They were big with huge, tall ears. They had a little, fluffy tail.
I loved this place. I wish we could have stayed another day.
