SHORTLY AFTER we moved to Kamloops in August of 2012 we were told of a not-to-miss event unfolding every fall in the Adams river: the annual salmon run, peaking every four years.
Come October, we went to the then-named Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, now Tsútswecw. There was salmon alright. Not a river running red with it, but there was salmon to tell the tale.
And what a tale it is. Salmon truly ties the various ecosystems of this province like a ribbon, holding everything together functioning perfectly and ensuring the continuity of life, year after year.
