I had to include at least one picture of the salmon all smoked and glossy looking so tempting. All the smoking paraphernalia is cooled and quiet again and the freezer is filled to the brim with sealed packets of ready to eat sockeye and king. Next adventure, fish heads….I’m not sure exactly what to do with them, soup maybe? This morning we picked the cooked carcasses and harvested a couple more pounds of meat, some of which we turned in to tasty salmon cakes with an avocado tartar sauce.
Yesterday we went out to see the ceremonial ribbon cutting of the humpback creek project. We took a water taxi out to the project site and climbed the penstock up to see the inner workings of the hydroelectric project. Except I didn’t make it over the canyon, I thought maybe I could but my knees started to wobble looking down at the drop and I turned back. I spent some time back at the base working up the nerve to talk to some of the state politicians about some new legislation. Baby steps, but maybe they’ll eventually get somewhere.

We finished out the day scoping out some land, walking different lots and trying to weigh the pros and cons of living in or out of town. No definitive leads yet but gradually we’re gathering lots of information.
