Salmon Swimming Upstream

Salmon are amazing, trying, and trying, and trying to get upstream…so they can spawn and die.  If you get a chance to see this, it’s amazing.  The best run I’ve experienced here in Ketchikan was late in August, but it varies depending on the season, the location, and the variety of salmon.

Still pictures don’t really capture is, so check out my Youtube video to see these guys in action:







Salmon Statue in Ketchikan

This glittering statue on Ketchikan Creek is prettier than the salmon swimming below him, but not as heroic.  Next time I’ll show the live animals in their upstream struggle.
