Dead salmon after spawning
Let's see if it moves!
Salmon turn red before spawning

I didn’t know fish could walk!  But apparently this is one of the biggest years for salmon spawning!  We got a good close look and smell on the Shuswap River this weekend.  Amazing that these fish instictively go back to where they were born to spawn their own offspring and to die!  The whole salmon cycle is a strange scientific wonder.

It was also Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.  I will confess I wasn’t very thankful and really could use an attitude check.  But I am so thankful for my family – my husband and kids.  Where would I be without them?
