My favorite volcano in the world is Mount St. Helens in Washington. We went there last spring.
There was a huge observation deck and I used binoculars to look at it. I saw mashed-up land on the ground. I also found a huge crater in the volcano
and lots of rocks all over it.
I like learning about earthquakes, tsunamis, and twisters. But I like volcanoes the most. It's
so cool the way they erupt. In class I did a project on Mount Fuji, a volcano in Japan. And in summer camp I made this volcano. I used
soft clay and put food coloring in it. There was lava coming out of it.
My family travels a lot. Last year we went to the Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. There
was a place in the cave that was really low. Even my sister and I had to bend down and squeeze through. Once we were inside I saw lots of stalagmites
and stalactites. We saw lots of bats, too. There were all kinds of rocks. Some were dry, and some were wet and slimy. It was really dark and cold in
there. To show us how dark it was in the cave they turned off the light for a few seconds. It was pitch-black. I couldn't see anything, not even
my hand. It was fun!
In the future I want to visit the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii. It's still flowing
and I want to get close to it.
