Time & Location
About the Event
On this favorite family outing, we take several short hikes and collect cobbles transported 400 miles by Noah's Flood. Along the way, we will investigate fossil wood, which in some places is merely charcoalized and remains burnable despite an alleged age exceeding 15-16 million years old! Students will handle "rock solid" evidence for a young earth and a global flood while we discuss why this is important for our faith and our confidence in the historical accuracy of Scripture. We will also encounter a variety of flowers and other amazing plants and animals that defy evolution.
We will meet at 9:00 am between Starbucks and Hood River Inn near the Hood River Bridge. For day trips, we suggest a donation of $25 per family (or $15 for the individual) which can be payed in person on the day of the tour. Cash is fine or checks to "John Hergenrather." We will give out a field book with helpful info and have a short introduction. Our route will take us across the Hood River Bridge and about 20 miles with 4 or 5 stops and short hikes on the Washington side. More helpful details and reminders will be sent a week or so before the trip. we'll email some last-minute directions and reminders.
