I shared photos of the amazing sockeye salmon run on the Adams River in British Columbia earlier, and here are some nature shots along the river.
Walking past this stump on the way out I thought it looked like a heart. Walking past it again on the way back it looked like a barn owl : – )
We spent a few days up at the Salute to the Sockeye festival the last few days at the former Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park.
The park was recently officially, and rightfully, renamed Tsútswecw Provincial Park. (I’ve read news reports that family of the late Haig-Brown — one of Canada’s most famous environmentalists and nature writers — supports the renaming).
This year is a dominant run, and though it’s been slow shaping up, it was still awesome. I think this is the third or fourth dominant run that we’ve taken in — they happen every four years, with slower runs in between.
