Walk Two Moons
Starting Point: Euclid, Ohio or Bybanks, Kentucky?
First off: where do we really start?
Just to make life easier-and to make this form shorter-I've chosen Euclid, Ohio as the starting point.
Good Synonyms to Know
- Indian(s)=Native American(s)
- singing trees=birds singing in trees
- Some type of transportation(maybe not a bus...)
- Something to entertain yourself with
- A driving license(technically not...but you should have it if you're driving alone)
Small, but cozy. It definitely is different from the country setting you were in, but you'll get used to it. Just because it's small in size doesn't mean that you can't make it wonderful. Every house is very interesting to look at from the inside, like Mrs. Cadaver's or the Finneys' house.
I wished I had a better picture for the style here in Euclid, but this is the best I could get. Kids are up to date with the style; always wearing new clothes, and most of them wear braces. The girls here wear their hair in a shoulder-length bob(as displayed in the picture) with long bangs.
Phoebe's Tips on Things to Avoid
This city has many attractions, both from nature and man-made. You can go visit places like the Mirror Lake State Park or Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park.

Pipestone National Monument
The Pipestone National Monument has 56 sites to quarry for pipestone, or catlinite, which makes pipes. It is very difficult to quarry for the pipestone; you have to dig through soil(which depth ranges from 1-6 feet) and Sioux Quartzite(which depth ranges from 4-10 feet). It is very tedious work because you can only loosen small pieces of Quartzite, and once that's done the pipestone itself is very fragile. If you want to quarry, you should go in the summer or late fall months.
Gram and Gramp's Tips on Places to Go
The Badlands were made by deposition and erosion, and it is a sedimentary rock. The climate in the summer can become really hot, but winters are brutal. Unpredicted weather conditions are common.
The Sioux Indians used to have the Black Hills, which houses Mount Rushmore, with the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie, but then the US government took it back. The Black Hills has some very valuable resources like gold, timber, and minerals, but it is not the only reason why the Sioux want it back. It also is like a spiritual center for them too.
Truthfully, Mount Rushmore is unfair to the Sioux because they were here first in America. At least a state historian, Doane Robinson, wanted to attract tourism and tried to get Red Cloud, a Sioux chief, as one of the faces. But the actual sculptor-Gutzon Borglum-suggested the presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln(they added the other two presidents later) as the subjects to attract more "national interest", as said on history.com.
