This 1.8 mile walk through the forest to the stream is beautiful - but it was the surprise at the river's edge that made this one of those adventures that I will never ever forget.
I arrived at the lowest part of the trail - where it reaches the sandy flat part of the river and heard splashing. And then more. And then I saw silver reflections in the water. And to my absolute amazement I saw dozens of salmon spawning. These rough and tough miracles of nature had made their way up the river for over ninety miles to reach this sandy bottom.
I treasured the moments.
