The older kids from Far North went on an 11 day field trip in May 2003.  This was an exciting trip
that started with a train ride on the historic Alaska Railroad from Fairbanks to Anchorage.  After spending
a few days in Anchorage, they travelled to Valdez for some halibut fishing and sightseeing.  Then it was on to
Clam Gulch for some great clam digging, followed by a trip down to Kenai where they explored the
Portage Glacier and went fishing for King Salmon.   Please take a few minutes to view our photos.
 

 


 In Anchorage the students met up with their school bus and Ed,
the bus driver, then it was off to enjoy the following sites:
H2O Oasis Waterpark
Anchorage Museum of History and Art
Imaginarium
Indoor Mini Golf
Alaska Zoo
Alaska Native Heritage Center
Anchorage Golf Course
Sightseeing and shopping in Anchorage

They also met up with friends that used to live in Central
and invited them along to enjoy some of the sites.

The students had a great opportunity to go deep-sea fishing for halibut
on a 1st class charter boat.  David and Mae, the owners of the
Orilla Mae ensured that the excursion was enjoyed by all!

Last stop on the field trip is for some great clamming!  Thanks go to
Lyle, a professional clam digger that taught us so much, and to
Harold and Melissa for inviting us into their home to clean our catch!
