Anthony, and my special things are some fossil rocks. They are very old
rock indentations of leaves that have formed into all different shapes
I still lived in Wasilla when I came upon them. I was meeting some
of my parents' friends at their house for a party. We all decided to go
fossil hunting, so we went on a trail through the woods looking for
them. On the way, we stumbled across veins of coal twisting and turning
through the ground. I was fascinated by them, and thought they looked
like giant worms in the ground.
Later, we saw a huge pond that looked like a large hole in the
ground. All around the pool there were frogs! I loved frogs, so I went
and caught some. Of course, when I was done, I let them go. Finally, we
got to this big, open space that was covered with fossils! We all
dropped as if we were dead and started picking them up. One was so big
we couldn't lift it!
These fossils remind me of old times and friends back in Wasilla. I loved it there, and that's why they are important to me!
