Be alert to salmon crossing

The Ear got a chuckle when OREGON COAST TODAY ( posted this cryptic photo above, on its Facebook page this week, about a subject close to the heart of most North Coasters: salmon.

The caption explains it all: “Funny that there’s no official Oregon Department of Transportation sign for ‘SALMON CROSSING.’ Get on that, Salem! This is posted right now on East Devils Lake Road in Lincoln City, at Rock Creek, where Devils Lake’s endangered coho salmon migrate upstream, occasionally using the passing lane when high water covers the pavement.” And now you know why the salmon crossed the road.
