Mount Lassen and my first fish

Hi Blog followers! Liv here (aka Girl). This post is about Mount Lassen. I hope you like it!

When I first got to Mount Lassen I noticed that the trees were mossy. I loved the sound of the river rushing. It sounded like it was going really fast. I’ve never seen blackish and orange-ish lava rocks before. I learned that these rocks are in the area because a long time ago there was a volcano that erupted. When the lava cooled, the rocks were formed. The lava rocks had lots of holes in them.

We went on a really cool hike and after the hike we went down to the river to cool off and fish. It took a lot of casts, but I caught my first fish! But the truth was, I was really creeped out by the fish once it caught my line. It was massive! You’d be surprised! My fish was one foot long. My dad held it, and I did my best to stay away from him. My heart was beating so fast and I was whimpering to myself. It was cool to catch my first fish, but scary to see the fish flopping around.

The morning we were leaving I peaked out of my tent window. I saw two big animals. At first I thought they were coyotes but they turned out to be jackrabbits. They were big with huge, tall ears. They had a little, fluffy tail.

I loved this place. I wish we could have stayed another day.

  • Congratulations on your first fish. Did you cook it or throw it back? Your writing style as improved a lot. I’m impressed!!! Did you know that jack rabbits use their large ears to help cool their bodies? I went for swim in the Adractic Sea today after a long hike/walk. Can’t wait for your next post. Give Stella a pat on the back from Opa. In fact give mom and dad one too. I love you

  • Hi, Liv! Mount Lassen sounds beautiful—mossy trees and a rushing river. Obviously a cooler climate! I’ll bet the orange color lava rocks were pretty. Congrats on catching your first fish ever! You said it was a foot-long— I wonder what kind of fish it was. Continue to enjoy your fun U.S.A. camping vacation.
    I love you!

    • Hi Jennifer,
      Thank you so much! We were in Portland visiting friends and family too and made it to Sequim yesterday. Tomorrow we’re planning to head through Whidbey and stay at Orcas Isand for a few days. Your area is gorgeous! We’re so lucky to be here.

  • I remember catching my first fish, it was a rainbow trout too. They are good to eat (if you like fish). I was 7 years old. I am a grandma now, but I still like fishing.
