Goldstream Provincial Park








the Chum salmon are spawning

and dying,

the seagulls are feasting


and the bears, too








the trees are big and old


and renewing themselves.

This salmon run is a miracle. In the Spring a fuel tanker truck overturned  on the highway that runs alongside the creek, spilling its entire load into the creek.

Although a massive cleanup was done nobody knew if the fish would return.
