Mountains and Basins??
By:Mehak, Eliana, Drew. and Mitchell
Today we left the Sierra Blanca Mountains and then we went to the Finlay Mountains. It is 5,710 above sea level. 99% of it is in the U.S and only 1% of it is in Mexico. It is 1,122 square feet and it is mainly made of shale and limestone. We saw animals that you would see in the rest of the U.S like deer. There was not really much there. We decided to set up camp early. When we did that we found an arrowhead in the dirt. We thought it was pretty awesome but still other than that we were just waiting for the next day to begin.
Today we left the Finlay Mountains and drove to El Paso there we had lunch in the Little Bavarian Restaurant( it was an european restaurant ). The food there was delicious. At the end we went to the La Quinta Inn, where Mehak and Eliana shared a room with 2 beds and then Mitchell and Drew shared the other room that also had 2 beds. We left our stuff in the hotel and the we went to the amusement park. It was really fun. We rode a bunch of rides but the it started to get dark so we decided it was time to go back to the hotel.
Today is when we pack all our stuff and go back to Midland.In the morning we went downstairs to have breakfast. All of us got juice, waffles and muffins. Breakfast was delicious. And now we all packed our bags and headed to our car. We took the shorter route home. All of us were exhausted but had an awesome time. In the end we ended up driving 684 miles.
