Adam's River Sockeye Salmon Run

Dreamer & Dan the Man

Last week Dreamer and her boyfriend (Dan the Man) traveled north to Salmon Arm to visit his brother's family.

Okay, okay,  I realize that salmon don't have arms.  Hardy har har

But seriously folks, they had a wonderful time visiting, and also enjoyed the beauty of Salmon Arm.

Adam's River to be specific.

Apparently every four years (2010, 2014, 2018 ...), Adam's River hosts a three week long party to celebrate the sockeye salmon run.  Check out details here.

For those that don't know, salmon swim back to where they were born ... hatched ... to lay their own eggs.  This is what is known as a Salmon Run.

It is quite a spectacular site to behold.

They had a great time being in God's great outdoors and looking at the wonders of His creation.  Imagine being able to be INSIDE  a mighty tree trunk to take this shot!

Then finally, after a four hour drive back home, they end the day at a BC Lions football game.  It doesn't appear that they are saddened by the fact that their team is doing so poorly this season :o)
