April 25 - by Madison

               Today we went to 2 national memorials.  We went to Chiricahua National Monument first, and this was the first national site where we were limited because of our RV.  We couldn't do anything because we were over 29 feet and you can’t drive in the park with an RV over 29 ft.  On the way, we had another problem with the bikes.  We were on a bumpy road and the bike rack which was already broken fell over!  The result is that Katelyn and Emma’s bikes needed repair.  Their whole front tire was completely ruined, it had huge holes in it and all the air was out of it.  My dad had to fix the bike rack because the bikes were dragging on the ground.  When we were done fixing the rack, my dad said that in Tucson there would probably be a place where he could get the bikes fixed and get a new bike rack.  We drove the rest of the way to the Visitor Center, and then we went to get our junior ranger.  Because we couldn’t drive beyond the Visitor Center, we had to do all the activities that we could do in the visitor center.  When we were done the book we went to Fort Bowie, the second national monument of the day.  We had to hike 1.5 miles to get to the Visitor Center, and this is the first time that we had to hike to get to a visitor center.  I didn’t really like the hike because there were too many flies and red ants.  When we were done the hike we got our junior ranger book and then we went to do the activities at the fort.  While we were doing the activities we saw 2 snakes and a toad that shoots blood out of its eyes.  When we were done we got our junior ranger badges and then we went back to the RV.  When we got to the RV we drove to the next RV Park.  When we got there we saw so may jackrabbits.  Their ears were so big and their legs were so long!  When we were done looking at them we went to bed.  I had a fun day at the parks.
