Wild West

Hello I'm going to tell you about the west! There are three mountain ranges the Rocky mountains, the Cascade Range, and the Sierra Nevadas. Alaska is the coldest state because it's not close to the equator. Hawaii isn't too hot because of its ocean winds, and there is a lot of rain.

This is Eskimo ice cream. It is made from reindeer fat, seal oil, freshly fallen snow, fresh berries, and sometimes even ground fish!!!

Dogsled racing is the most popular sport in Alaska. A team of dogs and their mushers (drivers) have started at Anchorage and ended 1,150 miles later in Nome.

This is a ukulele. This is one of the instruments used in luaus.

This is an ipu. This is another instrument used at luaus.
