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.
