- from The West
Your family is packing for a summer trip exploring the West. What will you bring?
Maybe you’ll pack a wetsuit for a surfing adventure in sunny Southern California. Maybe you’ll bring a snorkel and fins. You can observe colorful fish in Hawaii’s coral reefs. You might also see rare sea turtles. Maybe you’ll even bring a snowsuit. Snow falls on some peaks in Alaska all year long.
Do you have a pair of binoculars? You may want to spot woodpeckers in the tall pine trees of Oregon and Washington. You could see them among fir and spruce trees as well. Can you bring a cowboy hat? You might ride horses like a real cowhand in Montana and Wyoming. Suppose you pack a gold pan. Then you can visit historic gold-mining camps in Idaho and Nevada. Maybe you’ll bring a raft. You may want to drift down the rivers in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The West has so many different attractions. So you have a lot of options on this summer trip.
