My World Tuesday #34 - Stream Life

In the nearby town of Arlington, I happened to be driving up Olympic Avenue a few Saturdays ago. I noticed a tarp set up alongside one of the concrete retaining walls. Upon further inspection, I saw the paintings.


Of course, I promptly found a place to park and walked back down to take pictures. This is what I saw.

Sign on the Wall

The Stillaguamish River and its tributaries are very important to maintaining the population of many fish species. Eight different species including chinook, coho, chum, pink and sockeye salmon along with steelhead trout, cutthroats and bull trout return year after year to spawn.

The "Stilly" also supports plenty of recreational activities.

Salmon Fishing

Fly Fishing & Tubing

I liked the paintings and I would bet the neighbors appreciate it, too. It sure beats looking at a bare concrete wall.

That was very impressive and detailed painting on that wall. Definitely worth blogging for! Am I imagining or is it mr Fishing Guy appearing in that painting too?!

Sally these are awesome. Much better than bare concrete.

That certainly looks impressive and I know I'd much rather look at that then some concrete wall. Thanks for sharing.
