Adams River Sockeye Salmon Run

I cannot believe how many visitors this event attracts. We counted 7 busses in the parking lot and there must have been thousands of people there. We probably chose the busiest days of all, Sunday on the Thanksgiving weekend, but this was just unreal and took away from witnessing this natural phenomena. And of course everyone has a camera or cell phone so the shoreline was jam packed with iPhones, tripods and SLRs. This was a huge surprise to us. I had thought that perhaps we would see twenty or thirty cars in the parking lot and knew that this wasn't going to be a private affair but this was over the top. You live and learn. If I ever go back it will be mid week, later in the month and I will try to find another spot further up the river.
