Tuesday Journal
By: Sarah P., Megan W., Chelsea O., Steve K., Jocelynn S., Brandon S., Chad O.

On our second day on our trip we went searching for minerals, agate and other specimens of rock. We took observations and saw many changes in the populations and the geology of the landscape. Animals and the environment changed. The environment went from many trees, and sort of hilly to barely any trees and the hill went to the plains.

We went to two sites at the Badlands National Park and the Buffalo Gap Grasslands. It was fun finding rocks and watching Pronghorns and Mule Deer running in between the hills.We found many little rivers and that made the scenery amazing.

Dawn, Sarah, and Chelsea have tasted mineral samples of clay to feel the texture. They found some answers!

We slid down the hills at the Buffalo Grasslands. We had no brakes! The hands were sore, we had a few cactus spines in our butt, but it was worth the fun.
