How Fern Canyon Was Formed

Formed as a result of mining during the gold rush. Miners washed away topsoil with high-pressure water cannons. The creek made by the water cannons then further eroded the walls of the canyon. Soon the canyon was totally eroded and ferns grew on both sides of the big gorge.
