My neighbor, on his BMW Dakar, and I rode 325 kms yesterday up to view the salmon run on the Adams River near Salmon Arm, BC.
Took us about two hours to get there, via the backroad between Falkland and Chase, then over the bridge to the Adams River. At first we went into the Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park where they wanted us to pay $5 each to park WAY-Y-Y back at the furthest end of the parking lot, but John said "Follow me!" and we rode back out onto the highway, (where a brown black-bear ran across between me and a truck, into the woods towards the river) then west about half a mile where we parked off to the side and walked in.
First sockeye I photoed was already dead, high-and-dry in the rocks, but his hooked teeth very evident.
Soon we were seeing them everywhere, however the fact that we were looking toward the sun made getting good pics without the reflections from the sun ... difficult.
I started trying out the video function on my Olympus camera, and got some pretty fair vids, but so far I don't know how to up-load them, so - just take my word for that...
There were also chinook salmon "running", quite a bit larger, and silvery as opposed to the red sockeyes, but I only have them in vids.
After an hour viewing (and watching two Oriental woman walking around w/ their cameras attached to an 'arm' about three feet long, constantly taking "selfies"...?), we headed back to the bikes to head (via back roads) to Salmon Arm for lunch, then back via the scenic Salmon River Road, and the shores of Lake Okanagan. I saw this colorful tree just south of Salmon Arm....
