We went hiking on the Appalachian Trail again. We hiked a long time. We saw a real shelter that long distance hikers can stay in. I swept it out so that people could sleep in it. Luke helped. I wrote in the hikers log, using my trail name, Flowers.
We saw a stray dog and I named it Caramel. I wanted to adopt it. Mom and dad said no.
We became Junior Rangers on the AT at the Appalachian Trail headquarters in Harpers Ferry. I did a Junior Ranger book and then I finished it and then I got my badge.
We drove to Washington D.C. and we saw lots of monuments: Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, the Capitol building, and the White House.
We went to a baseball game at the end of the day. There was a big play place and I played in it lots with Mike. After that I watched the baseball game. The Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals. I was cheering for the Washington Nationals.
There was also a presidents race. They had ENORMOUS heads. They were Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. And the Geico gecko…my favourite.
We went to a hotel after 11 o’clock. The game ended very late.
I can’t wait for day five!
