Today we woke up, and drove to Aztec National Monument. When we got there we went to the front desk at the Ranger Station. There we got our Junior Ranger books. After that we went on a hike. We saw many houses in the village, and in the middle was a big kiva. The houses were about 900 years. Although that is really old, we have still been to older houses. In the middle of the hike my dad got mad because we were misbehaving.
He left us in the houses to do our own thing. My sisters and I said that we would start to behave more. One way is that instead of yelling at each other we could talk to each other. Also on the rest of the hike me, and my sisters weren't walking with my dad, and my sister Katelyn would not move until we walked a side trail. We tried talking to her, but the only thing she would say is "I will only move until you walk the side trail." Finally she moved because she was really hot in the sun. When we got in the visitors center we got our junior ranger badge, and then walked back to the RV to eat lunch. Next we drove to a campsite by Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.
It was about an hour, and 17 minutes. When we got to the campsite we swam in a really nice pool. It was really fun. Finally we ate dinner and went to bed.
