Thanksgiving holidays brought an opportunity to get back onto the Parkway after a long year of change; a marriage, a move, some grief and struggle, much joy. So much to be thankful for, also things to cry for.
We did fifteen miles to ease back in, then stopped to watch the salmon at the American River Hatchery make their battered and weary way up the ladder into the “processing area” to spawn. Their life-ending struggle put our past year in perspective, to tell the truth. Here we were, watching them at the end of their lives, not the other way around.
And a new Trek is growing to join my mate’s. Stay tuned.
