A delightful six and a half mile hike
in Milo McIver Park 7/23/15

A surprisingly semi-difficult hike on an un-improved
delightfully shaded trail from Kingshisher Campground to the Fish Hatchery.

We had a tour of the fish hatchery including a disussion with a ranger
and then we had lunch at a delightful cove on the Clackamas river

During lunch we saw an Osprey catch a fish
and do a fly-by with the fish
in front of our group and some fishless fishermen

What we saw looked just like this
