I was laying in bed and heard one feeble fireworks go off down there at what must have been midnight.
The only snow we have had was back in November. There were continuous rains over the Xmas season which washed away most of the snow up to about 400 meters.
The creeks came up just a little with the rain enabling a few spawning salmon to get up from the river into the creek that goes by here. Once into the spawning area they die quickly and are pulled from the shallow water in short order, others simply disappear in the dark of night and taken away to distant dens.
There may be 5-6 in the area at one time.
This one slowly followed the shoreline, Skookie took great interest and went down to have a closer look.
