Goldstream Park Adventures!

On Sunday morning mom said, "Let's go!"  so I said, "You betcha!" even though I had no idea where we were headed.  After quite a long car ride, we finally parked the car and got out.

Mom told me that the salmon were spawning and we should check it out.

Okay... Let's head down this trail!

We had to stop at this tree that fell down so that mom could take a picture of me in front of it.  Can you believe that she even said, 'maybe you should get in it, wouldn't that be a fun photo?'

Um... no.

I've never been to this park before and mom says it's been years and years since she's been to it.  The morning was overcast and foggy but that just made the sceneries more spectacular!

A nice little stream that had a bridge that we walked over...

Mom tells me that sometimes you can go through this tunnel to get to the other side of the highway and see more of the park.  We didn't do that because there was lots of water going through there and knowing mom as I do, she would have tripped and fallen and gotten us both soaking wet!

Some more pretty scenery...

And we saw TWO eagles!  I'm sure they were just waiting to eat some of the dead salmons!

Here I am, taking a break and keeping an eye on the eagles... I don't think I really want to be some birdie's lunch!

Hurry it up, mom!  Let's go find those spawning salmon!

Here they are!  After they finish spawning, they die... and then the seagulls, eagles, ducks and other wildlife eat them up!  But lots of them weren't eaten yet and they were just laying around... getting real nice and stinky!

Mom told me that I wasn't allowed to get close to the stinky fish!  I told her I wasn't gonna do nuthin but roll on it... but she still made me stay clear of it... most unreasonable, mom!

Even this seagull was watching me!  He totally didn't want me to get near his lunch!

So there you have it!  My Goldstream Park salmon spawning adventure!

I hope you had as much fun as I did!

  3. We loved that adventure. We'd love to see those salmon...actually, we love salmon to eat. Can't believe your mum wouldn't let you at least roll in it, although that Gull looked like he meant business.

  4. What a great adventure and thanks for sharing about the salmon spawning. Love the photo of the eagles :-) Shame that you did not get to roll on the stinky salmon - peeps just don't appreciate some scents the way we doggies do. Nose licks and love from Moth xx

  5. What a beautiful park for a walk. We're glad the eagles didn't think you would make a tasty snack.

  6. Exploring new parks is always so much fun cause of all the new smells. What a lush and green place. Cool tree, wonder if any buddy lives in there
