Sockeye

I was walking the trailing around the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau and was startled by the splashing of this sockeye in the stream. I was a little hopefully that it might have been a bear in the stream, but no such luck. I watched the sockeye trying to get up this one sand bar and then snapped a few pictures of him popping his head out. Original photo August 3rd, 2005.
