Dawson Creek, Outdoor Activity Tours
So instead of working today, me and two co-workers went for a small little day trip...It was so much fun. First of all we drove out to the old wooden Kiskatinaw Bridge and got our pictures taken out there as well as took in the scenery. We went on a kind of a cold day, but none the less it was still a breath taking view. The only unfortunate part of the drive was that since the bridge is located on the old Alaska Highway, the road out there hasn't been well maintained so there were a few potholes and gravel spots along the way, but it didn't seem to bother anyone. The best part was that before and after the bridge there was lots of room on the shoulders where people could pull over and take pictures as well as stretch there legs.

After we jumped back into the truck and headed to the Barnyard Petting Zoo. We were greeted by a wonderful lady who told us all we needed to know about the zoo as well as how to take care and manage so many animals... She had everything there, rabbits, chickens, geese, lambs, goats, pigs, cows, and horses. It was amazing. We were able to pet the animals, hold them, and basically do whatever we wanted with them except ride them. After that we headed over to an old hay barn where she had a tickle trunk filled with old western wear where people can dress up and get their pictures taken. So of course we jumped in on the opportunity. When we walked back to the main area we saw that she had a little park area set up. There were picnic tables where you can have lunches as well as toys for kids to play on. All three of us were quite impressed with her set up and would go back again in an instant. Just the feeling being back on a farm again brought back so many childhood memories...I just wish I could have rode the horses.
