Before heading home we stop off at the Bonneville Fish Hatchery. We were there bright and early and had the place to ourselves!
Some good sniff spots
Lots of flowers in bloom
One of the hatchery houses
Before exploring the hatchery, we head over to check out the view of Beacon Rock
You can see Beacon Rock off in the distance.
Off we go and Viva watching the birds off in the distance.
The views around the hatchery are wonderful.
"What is this weird thing?"
Making our way to the ponds
We move through the fish pens
A beautiful giant sequoia
Viva fascinated by this fountain
Lots and lots of hosta
We find a cool drinking fountain
We arrive at the ponds!
All around the ponds is just beautiful
Time to visit the sturgeon
"What's going on in this place?!"
Holy smokes you can't miss the sturgeon!
The view above
and if you really look you can see a sturgeon swimming about
Time to start heading back to the car and we pass a few more trout pens
Viva wonders what the heck these things are.
We stroll by a very large piece of petrified wood
The roses were just starting to bloom
Stay tuned as we visit Bonneville Dam
