Day Trip to Lynn Canyon Park

Ben and I went for a day trip on a Friday before the school year ends. We had no idea that there will be so many school children on field trip to the Lynn Canyon Park on that day.

The first stop was to Inch Creek Fish Hatchery to see the largest freshwater fish in the world. We saw two sturgeons in a shallow man made pond.

Then we proceeded to Weaver Creek. There were some nervous moments as our bus driver got lost on a mountain logging road. He got to turn around twice on a narrow logging road and the people who sat at the back of the bus were most scared when the bus backed up to the edge of the cliff.
