Looking for salmon- not seeing any
We took way, way too many movies of this, but it sure was fun to watch Jaide feed the baby fish and freak out when they started jumping out of the water in excitement for food. Bob's Mom came along with us for this one. We rented a big old lincoln so there was plenty of room.
There's a river and a dam and a salmon run thing at the hatchery. I managed to capture one salmon coming up on video. Apparently there are a lot more at Thanksgiving time.
"baby salmon egg" at the visitors' center and "twin salmon?"
In addition to the big cement tanks of baby fish and the salmon run there was also an interesting little visitors' center. I never knew salmon had a better sense of smell than a dog, but now I do!
Near closing time, that truck (below left) was driving up and down along the tanks shooting out fish pellets. The fish really went nuts for it. This picture doesn't really capture it at all.
Our other fun excursion was to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom- our last Six Flags trip with our season passes. Sadly, we left the camera in the car and didn't feel like going back to get it. The parking lot was kind of far from the actual park. It was cool because it was like a zoo with some rollercoasters. There were not very many lines which was also nice. We went to the sea lion show and the elephant show. At the end of the elephant show everyone got to pet the elephant. We paid the $5 so Jaide could feed the giraffes. She was kind of scared to feed them. That would have been a cool picture.
