Our family had lots of fun camping at Natural Bridge.  We hiked to Natural Bridge.  It was over a mile and steep climbing.  I saw a turtle that looked like a rock.  A squirrel freaked my mom out.  She thought it was a snake behind her.  It was just a gray squirrel running with a big apple apple in its mouth.  On the way up we stopped at all the shelters to rest.  Conor wanted to stop at all of them even on the way down.  Once at the top it looked scary to go across it.  My dad and Conor went across the bridge.  I stayed down and looked around.  I also carved a rock.

 After taking the hike we went to Red River Gorge.  We ate at the Sky Bridge Picnic Area.  On the way there we drove through the Nada Tunnel.  It was a little scary - very dark and only one lane.  It is hard to see if people are coming through Nada Tunnel.  We stopped at the Nature Center.  It was really cool - we got to color  and see different animals of the National Forest.  
 
We took a short hike to Sky Bridge.  I actually went out on this bridge.  This bridge you have to be careful on - its worn out and not that wide caused from erosion.

  It was lots of fun camping too!  I sneaked cookies and had fun playing with my new friends.  They were from Amelia, Ohio.  We saw baby screech owls at our campsite one evening. Early one morning we drove to Beattyville, KY to see where my great great grandma lived.  Next we came back to Natural Bridge and went paddle boating.  We got see a cool bird sitting on a branch and he came down into the water and got a minnow with his long beak.  After that we went swimming.  I met another friend and we played ball and Marco Polo. 

  We had to leave the pool it was beginnning to rain.  We went back to the campsite and it still was raining.  After getting dry clothes and shoes we went to  the Natural Bridge Hotel to eat dinner.   The chicken is very good, I ate four legs.  The vanilla ice cream was also good with chocolate chips I put in myself. 

Our trip was fun.  On the last day I bought candy cigarettes for Jack and me.  I also bought a lot of bottles orange sunkist to drink all week.    I sat around the fire drinking my mom's coffee and smoking with a candy cigarette acting like papaw.
