Today my group hiked Mt. Storm King. In the beginning I thought it was pretty easy but by the middle it was getting harder. But Mr. Garwood, one of my chaperones, gave me a good tip about drinking lots of water and holding my arms over my head for a second. That made it a little easier. Along the trail we saw a lot of caterpillars that were colors like black and purple. The view at the top was beautiful. Once we got to the top it was easy going back down, but slippery. I even got a little scratch. And I even saw my bird from the bird report. I'm excited to have a little free time now and relax after that long hike!
