Around the Woods

Our Trip to the Rockies - 2006 (2)

"We were ignored by the animals, but the people were great!"

Every year Pacific salmon return to the rivers of British Colombia to spawn. They have an amazing and perilous journey around predators and river rapids to reach the gravel where they themselves were born.
Here is the falls on the Fraser River that stops the salmon on their spawning run each year. Only the strongest make it this far on their 800 mile journey.
It is small wonder that none make it past this pool. We watched this log seemingly trying to get out of the eddy into
the main stream
only to get turned back and worn more smooth.
It looks to be long, hard trip for a salmon
up the river between the mountains.
My wife wanted a rock from the Fraser for the aquarium back home.
