A Hike up the Mountain
At the Grand Teton long ago, a moose and a wolf traveled up a mountain. As they hiked up the mountain they first had to find food. They worked together to pick berries off a big tree. The moose made a fire and they sat around the fire and ate the berries. After they ate they went to sleep because they had to walk up the rest of the mountain the next day. The next day they woke up and started to walk up the rest of the mountain. As they were walking up the moose's antler's got stuck in tree branches. The wolf tried to get them unstuck but he couldn’t. Then a squirrel came out of the tree and helped the wolf got the moose unstuck. After the moose was unstuck they kept walking. It was getting dark and they were almost there but they were very tired. The wolf spotted a cave not far away. They were walking to the cave and the wolf falls into a hole. The moose uses his antlers to get the wolf out. The wolf made the fire and they sat around it. The moose said " thank you for helping me get my antlers unstuck." "No problem thank you for getting me out of that hole" said the wolf. Then they went to sleep. The next day they awoke and kept walking up the mountain, they were very thirsty and hungry. They haven't ate or drank since they left to climb the mountain. Then they both spotted it. The top of the mountain. They ran for it and looked out. It was the most beautiful thing they have ever seen. While they were up there they worked together to build a shack to live in.
