December Thirteenth Photo a Day ~ Seeking Salmon

Seeking Salmon

When the Chinook salmon spawning season rolled around this Fall we decided to go look and see if we could spot any swimming upstream in one of the local salmon-favored rivers.

Couldn’t see any from the bridge.

But during a closer inspection while walking along the river bank, we noticed several dead salmon - having already laid their eggs we missed their swim upstream and they’d died - one eerily seeming to look skyward,  as well as rather prehistoric.

I wonder what killed them

Kosh, I fixed the post to clarify... it's the annual Fall salmon spawning when, if you get there in time, you can see the salmon swimming upstream to lay their eggs. We found them post-spawning after they'd naturally died.
