Salmon Running up at Strawberry

Well we went into SLC for Labor day and got there on Sunday.  It was great I got to move some more items into my garage-making the move easier.  And on the way we got to see the salmon running up the river in Strawberry.  It was great the water just looks pink.  They have a discovery trail which you can walk on and look at the scenes with trail markers, and over looking the river.  Some of the kokanee salmon go to the hatchery and are milked and some salmon get to go on and run naturally.

At the hatchery they were just jumping all over the place.  So if you have a chance and are up by Strawberry Reservoir between August and October you should check them out.

Yeah my DH did it most all of the pics where recovered!


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
