River Trip

Sadie McCracken

About the author: Sadie is eleven years old and calls Ridgway, CO home, though she used to live in Phnom Penh Cambodia, and was born in Washington DC. She lives with her mom, dad, sister, and dog. She loves to read, write, and draw, but she’s also learning to snowboard. She adores unicorns and lives across the street from one of her best friends. What inspired her to write this poem is a hike she did in Rabbit Valley overlooking the Colorado river. She is soon going to publish a book called Eloise Thatcher.
