Salmon Run

13 Oct

Hi Sara!

This weekend we drove a couple miles down the road to Bear Creek to watch the salmon swimming upstream during their annual spawning run. Here are some of the photos we took during our hike.

These salmon are known as Sockeye salmon which have a dark green/blue/grey head and tail and a very bright red back (some with long, narrow, white spots along their back indicating that they are older). These colors are only present during spawning season. Otherwise, their entire bodies are typically greyish/green.
