Credit & Copyright: NPOD Splashing Salmon:What's that noise? Someone running through the creek? A bear wrestling a moose in the shallows ahead? No! It's several huge salmon making a mad dash through a section of the creek that is barely two inches deep! These surprisingly strong creatures thrash their way up amazingly shallow sections of the creek and leap over giant obstacles near the end of their journey from the open ocean to their freshwater spawning grounds.
