Salmon Crossing Flooded Road in Washington, USA (2 Videos)

Why did the salmon cross the road? To get to the other side - of the river.
Amazing. If this keeps up they'll need to put up a 'Salmon Crossing' sign. You can truly appreciate the strength and tenacity of these fish species after watching this...

This video was taken in November 2016 on the Skykomish Valley Road near Seattle, WA. Due to high rainfall, the river had burst its banks and was flooding over fields and roads. Migrating salmon - returning from a life in the ocean - seek the lower flow streams to spawn and die. These are following the stream wherever it goes - using great effort to overcome obstacles including roads.
