Shuswap Lakes, August 2010

Just some highlights of a relaxing five days out on the Shuswap... Worth noting were the unusually large numbers of running salmon visible in the creeks and streams, floating in the lake or rotting away along the shore. A classic example of Mother Nature’s excesses and to which the local bear population was helpless to resist partaking in. In hindsight, it probably would have been best to heed the temporary No Mooring signs posted on that beach adjacent to the salmon spawning stream, eh? But anyway, I could really get used to this life of leisure and a HUGE thanks to everyone that made the experience possible once again!
