SALMON RUN at ADAMS RIVER

Spent time out in the  Shuswap area over Thanksgiving where the sockeye salmon are filling the  Adams River  to spawn. There is a big run every four years and  this  year is  one of the big runs. It is an amazing spectacle! The sockeye  turn red and green  when  they return to their spawning grounds.
