Return of the Salmon

It happens every year in the Pacific Northwest. Salmon return to the rivers and streams of their birth to spawn.  Three main species of salmon return to the Cedar River in Renton:  the Sockeye, Chinook and Coho.  The Sockeye is the most abundant and I recently visited the Cedar to see them make their journey upstream.

The glint of the salmon in the river surrounded by autumn leaves reminded me of this week’s prompt from Travel with Intent, Golden.

  1. I have seen documentaries about bears catching salmon in America.
    The determination of those fish to return is a sight to behold. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Yes, I love the miracle of the returning salmon! Fortunately there are no bear in downtown Renton but they are not far off in the forests nearby. Thanks Pete 🙂
