Kokanee Salmon...

 There was a lot of spring run off in 2011.  A lot of water went over the spillway of Causey Reservoir.  Along with the water went some Kokanee Salmon.
 When it was time for them to swim up stream to spawn, there was a little bit of a problem.
 They couldn't get past the dam.
 So they were trapped.  We went up to see the salmon.  The poor things just kept swimming around banging their heads on the dam trying to get through.
 That is pretty strong instinct if you ask me!
 The girls had fun watching them, and tossing rocks in the water (but not at the salmon!).
 We talked to the girls about how they should be like the fish and trying to get back to live with Heavenly Father.  These poor fish couldn't go back home, but they could always go back.

It was a fun little adventure for our family.
