Nature Walk

Last week, in Biology class we walked outside and took pictures of nature for iNaturalist. We stepped outside into the hot Arizona heat, as the sun beat down on our faces. As we walked out onto the hard pavement our eyes were greeted with a bright glow of the sun. As we squinted our eyes and face to adjust to the hot Arizona climate, we encountered wildlife. We heard little crackles in the bushes as little lizards paced back and forth in and out of the bushes. We proceeded to walk and found little branches that broke off trees. I picked one up and felt the hard bark, and thick branch. I ran my fingers up the branch as some of the leaves fell off onto the dry dirt. As I dropped the branch my friends and I counted to walk. We found our way to the other side of the school and smelled gasoline as a quick car rolled bye. Its tires scratched across the pavement as the smell of gasoline and burning rubber filled my nose. I almost tasted it as the smell crept through my nose and into my mouth, giving the smell a flavor. We walked into the grass fields and the sun’s heat was making me sweat. We walked until we found a box with a big desert toad in there. We also found tiny eggs that were adjacent to it. The frog was big and dark-ish green as the eggs were more of a pale white. There were three eggs, the size of a fingernail. As the toad was probably the size of my foot. We closed the box which had these animals inside, to ensure they were safe from the summer heat. As our teacher called us to come inside, we said goodbye to our wildlife friends, and scurried back to campus. As everyone gathered at the front of the school ready to go inside. We encountered the same toad hopping right next to us. Like it was waving goodbye as well. We all smiled and walked inside as that concluded our adventure.
