Salmon Run...Sort Of...

Our friends the Parks told us about an annual salmon run up by Strawberry Reservoir. We all wanted to see it, red salmon ready to lay eggs swimming upstream. How neat! So after church last Sunday we took a little drive up to check it out. We saw this:

...a lone dead salmon...


...and we saw this...
two red salmon, next to the shore, you can barely see them, and there was a muskrat on the shore.

So yeah, when we got there we read that the salmon run is between August and early October. We kind of missed it, oh well. It was still a pretty drive with good friends :)

Nathan, Kendra, and James in front of the fish trap, where they take the eggs of the salmon to help increase the salmon population. Thanks Matt and Aubreigh for showing us! It was still fun!

LOL! You're right though, at least it was a nice drive with good friends! I was going to say "there's always next year," but you guys probably won't be local then!! Any news yet? Probably not, but I'm so anxious for you guys!
