Salmon in Eagle Creek

leave a comment »

Spent Saturday hiking Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia Gorge where dozens of salmon were attempting to swim upstream. That section of the creek is basically the end of their run, meaning there were already a few dead fish floating in the water. Somehow I managed to get these three on camera… how they made it over that ledge of rocks in their exhausted state is beyond me. Being that close to them reminded me of how important they are to our ecosystem, which is why we should do all we can to support them.
