Fish Ladder

Fish Ladder | Wenatchee, WA | August 2019

The struggles of salmon to get home and have babies are monumental. On the Columbia River, predators (including fisher folk), ship traffic and hydro dams top the list of challenges. Yet, from a (smug) human perspective, the spawning parents seem to have adapted well to climbing fish ladders. They leap a barrier, rest in the next pool, leap, rest, repeat a thousand times. It’s both mesmerizing and inspirational — as are many stories of dedicated working moms.
