One tragic day my friends and I decided to take a trip to Death Valley. It was a struggle to survive. I thought that I might turn into a puddle. But luckily we found a camp. When we finally arrived at this camp we saw a hose and all we wanted was to drink some water. The water tasted great. It was hot, but it was delicious. All I wanted now was some food and water.

When I told him my name he told my friend and I to hop in the chopper, and that he would explain things when we were back in the air.The man picked up Jenny and carried her over to the chopper.
When we were in the air I told him about the bandits. He said, “They have been living in the park for a couple of years. The heat has driven them crazy.” He was surprised they attacked us. He said, “They usually won’t come near people.” So off we flew away in the sunset.
