Monday evening Jari led us down to Fish Creek to watch the salmon run.
It is just one of so many streams in Alaska running with salmon at this time of year.
We attempted dipnetting here as a family several years ago, but I've never seen the fish running up the stream.
We are easily entertained!
Continuous splashes coming up and we counted ... over and over again.
That evening, I think something like 14,000 salmon went up the creek.
We were seriously wishing for that bale counter thing!
Hi there hon!
It was worth the trip. Some very red salmon ... hoards of them!
Fireweed in full bloom.
Evidence of bears' recent fishing as well.
I think we got enough photos and video to last a while!
