Creation Mysteries of the Columbia Gorge
On this favorite family outing we take several short hikes, and collect cobbles transported 400 miles by Noah's Flood and find petrified wood. In some places the wood is only charcoaled and is we can light it on fire, though it is claimed to be 15-16 million years old! On this trip students will handle "rock solid" evidence for a young earth and a global Flood and we discuss why this is important for our faith and our confidence in the historical accuracy of scripture. Along the way we usually encounter amazing plants and animals that defy evolution.
We meet at the Starbucks near the Hood River Bridge at 9:00 am and return about 3:30 pm. The suggested donation is $25 for families or $15 for an individual, which you may bring the day of the trip. Each family will receive a creation field notebook of the Gorge containing a quiz and other educational activities for kids.
