I was also feeling a little heavy while I was in the river which made me fall to the floor of the river again. I started seeping into the dirt which made me gag and feel uncomfortable.

Melt into a River
Aaaah. Nice and warm!
It's been a day since I've been in the Applegate River. Last night, I kept on slowly moving up towards the surface of the water. The next thing I knew was that it morning and I was right at the top of the river. I started feeling lighter and I began to escape the water. I then realized that I was evaporating into big, puffy clouds in the morning sky.
A lot of water droplets start evaporating and start to form clouds, making the clouds get heavier and heavier. I start getting really excited because I've never precipitated as snow before and since I know that we are in Utah by the Wolf Mountain, I start gaining hope. My wish came true! I started falling from the clouds and the second that I escaped it, I froze and became snow. Woohoo!
Unfortunately, the temperature in Utah changed by it becoming higher and warmer. At the top of the mountain, I started expanding and melting. I slid down the whole mountain and ended up in the San Juan River. It was much warmer here than by the mountain.
That was the story of my favorite 15 days of my life. Being a water droplet is super fun and adventurous because you can travel to so many places in such a short period of time.
