A Field Trip

Grandpa had me bring the boys out to his work on Monday last week, and they got to see salmon in all of their stages.

The boys were really interested! Then we went over to the spawning shed, and Dad opened the trap to allow tons of fish to flop inside, and then get sleepy in a bath, and then get their heads chopped off.
That was where Connor stopped liking it so much. He thought the blood and guts were gross.

That's the fish ladder, going up the hill from the river to the hatchery.
