Salmon Spawning in Piper's Creek!

Very near my home is Carkeek Park, which is the home of Piper's Creek. About 12 years ago, the creek was stocked with Salmon. The Salmon have been returning to spawn regularly ever since.
This is very exciting to me, living in the middle of a big city, and Salmon are spawning about a mile and half away!

Thanksgiving is the "peak" of the spawning season. I headed down to the park today to check it out. The pictures of the fish didn't come out so great, but here they are!
