 My family took a trip to Lake Havasu for my spring break. The lake has an interesting history. In 1963, Robert P. McCulloch, the owner of McCulloch Motors, was flying over the lake. He thought that the land surrounding it could be good for a new city.

 Most people think of Arizona as a hot desert landscape, but there’s snow in our state if you know where to look. Recently I went to Snowbowl in Flagstaff to go skiing. I had so much fun!

My family skied for four days on the amazing Mount Humphreys, the tallest point in the state with a base elevation of 9200 feet. I started practicing skiing on the very short beginner slopes. It’s important to learn how to stop and how to have your skis in a pizza shape to control speed.

 During spring break my family and I took a trip to Rocky Point or Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. I highly recommend taking a visit. There are many things to see and do and it is only a four-hour car ride from Tucson.

Some of the things I suggest doing if you decide to adventure there are parasailing, horseback riding, jet skiing, zip lining, swimming in the Sea of Cortez and shopping. There seems to be something for everyone in Rocky Point.

 Last month my family and I went on a Cub Scout Camping weekend at Camp Raymond in Williams, Arizona. Even my sister went. Did you know that girls can be Cub Scouts, too?

We met up with our troop, set up our tent and headed out for a cool hike. On the hike, we caught crayfish and minnows in a little pond. Another troop was supposed to meet us, but the Webelos got a little lost and it took a while for them to find us. Some of the older scouts came over on the hike carrying a snake. It was a garter snake and I got to hold it.
