[[[A recent heavy rainfall + (careless?) construction practices in Burnaby, resulted in a number of salmon basically suffocating to death by the silt and sand that ran into the creek off the construction site.
. Humans . are . stupid .
Hopefully a hearty pod of tenacious fish had already made it past the death site and are on the last legs of their journey. Pictures below are from a couple of locations that the creek runs through the city.
Go little salmon! GO!!!
|Remnants of All Hallow's Eve. A giant Sasquatch going back to the rental place for another year.|
|First glimpse of the creek in the ravine.|
|Post rain storm rapids-like current.|
|Crystal clear water, yet warnings were posted that it was not safe for swimming or wading.|
|The remaining stump is MASSIVE next to its neighbouring tree.|
|Our first stop in our search through the urban woods.|
|Our second stop that was one block over from a major city intersection.|
|Strip malls and four lanes of road just on the other side of that fence.|
|An idyllic entrance to a magical place.|
