OLYMPIC NP, WA

Happy first day of fall! Have you ever seen salmon swimming up a river? Well, if you ever want to catch a glimpse of some returning back to the spot where they were born you can towards late summer at the "Salmon Cascades" on the Sul Duc River. I was able to see some swimming around and it's truly amazing to think that these fish can navigate and swim thousands of miles out to the ocean from the river and as an adult make their journey back to the same area they came from. Where there are salmon there are bears and even though it was unlikely that I would see one in the area it still freaked me out. The whole time I was sitting by the camp fire that night I felt like something in the woods was watching me!
