As we have done for years, the visit to see the salmon run, is a must.

But I don’t think we’ve ever gone seen the salmon in shorts and t-shirts.  This year has been warm.  A warm fall.  We were not sure if the salmon had started to come back up yet, when we went, so on our way to Siena’s swim meet in Hood River we stopped to check it out.

An amazing story of the cycle of life.
