USA PROJECT!!!!!!!!
This Presentation Rocks!!!!!
California Cable Cars
Lombard Street
Muir Woods

I think that the Muir Woods is really cool! I want to visit it sooo much!! Muir woods is named after a guy named John Muir and his family. I want a Woods named after me. The Muir Woods is a tourist place in San Francisco, California. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “tourist trap”, because it’s only 7 dollars a person with optional donations. It does not allow Bicycles, portable radios, smoking, picnics, pets, horses or camping. I think the Muir Woods sound so cool! I am such a big tree climber, I would really be up to climb the redwoods at the Muir Woods. I don’t know if you are aloud to climb the trees, but if you are, get me 7$ and a ticket to San Francisco, California. I wonder what it would be like if it was named after my name! it would be called the “Claudia Woods”. It has a nice ring to it! I think you'd like the Muir Woods
Golden Gate Bridge!

The Golden Gate Bridge! Wow! Want to know something interesting about the Golden Gate Bridge? I hope you do! Because the Golden Gate Bridge is 1 mile wide! And 3 miles long! It must’ve taken a long time to build that Bridge. In fact, it took over 4 years of construction to build it!. It was a cost of $35 million dollars! President Franklin D Roosevelt, opened it on May 28. What is sad is that the Golden Gate Bridge is located in the heart of the earthquakes in San Francisco, California! That is a very pretty bridge! I hope sometime in the future, no earthquake will damage the Golden Gate Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge is also one of the most recognized symbols in California. Isn’t that cool!
Earthquakes!!
Guess what? Something very sad is that San Francisco's last earthquake was HUGE!!!!! It wiped out tons and tons an TONS of houses and buildings. It killed over 3,000 people and close to 500 people were badly injured. The last earthquake was in 2006 in San Francisco, California. Scientists are always watching the earth's plates to try to do the best they can to predict the next earthquake. Scientists can't really predict when the next earthquakes, because sometimes the earth's plates move in a weird way. So then the next earthquake will maybe be ahead, or behind the scientist's charter.
AUTHOR'S NOTE
Author ( me Claudia) loves dogs. Has a dog and loves him very much. I used to live in Chicago ( check out Emma's Presentation on Chicago, Illinois.) . But that was only for a week. Then I moved to Seattle. stayed there for 3 full years. My favorite thing to do is play with my dog. Since I used to live in Seattle, Go Seattle Sea Hawks!!!!
California Reviews
You know what's cool? Alcatraz is only 12 acres long! it used to be a jail, but know it's a vacant space. Alcatraz is an island and is located in San Francisco, California. It's in the Pacific Ocean. If you motorboat on the ocean near Alcatraz, you might get lucky and see a shark or a manatee. I hope someday to visit Alcatraz someday! i hope you now want to visit Alcatraz as much as I want to!!!
Alcatraz
Guess What! The first ever successful California Cable Car, was in 1873! That was a long time ago! It was run on the Clay Street Hill Railroad. The promoter of the Cable cars was named Andrew Smith Hallidie. And the engineer was William Epplesheimer. Since that was a long time ago, I wonder if they ever wore old fashion clothes of if they had those long beards. The second ever successful Cable car was run on the Sutter Street Railway. CCC is short for California Cable Cars. The CCC is like a subway on the streets. I'd rather ride the CCC's instead of a subway, because on CCC's you can see the sky, or even a light, but on the subway, you can't really see things and it's like a shadow following you around. Well after this, i hope to ride a CCC someday. Or maybe even just go to California!!!
Cool!!
William Eppelsheimer
Andrew Smith Halilidie
I knew They had those beards and
bad fashion!!!!!
Lombard Street is really cool because it’s known for it’s zig zagged streets. It’s highest speed limit is 5 miles per hour because it’s so steep and rolling roads. On some days there is a festival that takes up the whole street and it’s decorated. During this you can go slip sliding down it! I’d really like to visit it someday. When you are driving on it, it feels like forever, because even though it’s only a mile, the traffic is so terrible, because you go at least 2 miles per hour and 5 at the most. Plus since it’s only 5 miles per hour, when you get down the street, the light there could be red, so the it feels like another hour at the light. I guess it might be cool to go to the festival days and slide down Lombard Street. Lombard Street is really cool because it’s known for it’s zig zagged streets.
