When I was a kid, we’d almost always vacation in Colorado – camping trips, generally planned to coincide with a full moon. One of the regular stops we’d made were fish hatcheries and I have a very specific memory of going to one that had huge cottonwood trees around the parking lot. (Maybe that’s when my love of cottonwoods got started?) I can also remember a particular smell inside the hatchery’s sheds; the way thousands of fishes swam toward our shadows, hoping for food; and how even on the hottest days it was cool and pleasant around the fish.
Going to the fish hatchery last month in Santa Rosa reminded me of those vacations.
