On Saturday we went to Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park to check out the sockeye salmon coming back to spawn in the Adams River. Ian and I had gone many times as kids, it had been years since our last visit though, and the first time for our kids. My Auntie Anedea and Uncle John live near by the park and so we went to visit them as well. My cousin Lynda and her son Dylan met us there and together we went to see the Salmon. After walking at the park Aunty Andea fed us a delicious soup lunch and we spent the early afternoon visiting.
It was a beautiful fall day with perfect weather. BC is such an amazing place, we are so happy to be able to enjoy it year-round again.
The sockeye are all red, with green heads, so each red thing you see in the water is a fish.
It really is an impressive feat these fish accomplish, thousands of people come from all over the world to see this natural event.
This is how it ends for the fish though. This pair even died together, awww.... ewww...
Marin, Dylan, Jeriah and Corban watching from the viewing platform.
There was no shortage of fish for Asher to spot.
Again with the amazing BC beauty!
The kids had fun along the shores of the river watching the fish and checking out the dead ones too, well Corban, Jeriah and Dylan did. You are welcome for not posting pictures of them attempting to pop the eyeballs out.
This is their impression of the dead fish.
There were many seagulls around for the easy feast of dead fish.
(I should note that the vast majority of the fish were still alive)
Also easy pickings for the bears, thankfully they head out when all the people come around.
Such funny and cute little bears we have. :)
