2013 Weekly Challenge #52: Annual Wrap Up and S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Its hard to believe we're at week 52 and that the year is almost over. 

The New Year is often a time for reflection, and for making goals, and that's what we're working on this week.

Take a little quiet time to yourself to reflect back on the last year. What did you do that you are really happy about or proud of? Give yourself some credit for those things and remember what you did to make yourself successful and to meet your goals.

Next, think about the upcoming year. There are 52 fresh new glorious weeks spread out before you and YOU get to decide what you're going to do with them!

The salmon are running in San Joaquin USA!

Another near-record salmon run is expected on the Stanislaus River this fall, while farther north, thousands of fish are already splashing their way up the Mokelumne River past Lodi.

So if you've never seen a mighty Chinook, this might be the year to get out there and find one.

The first opportunity comes Saturday at the Stanislaus River Salmon Festival at Knights Ferry, off Highway 120 east of Oakdale. From the festival on the banks of the river, you should be able to walk onto the Sonora Road bridge and peer down at the fish spawning in the gravel streambed.

As of Thursday, 2,680 salmon had passed a downstream weir near Riverbank, putting the Stanislaus only slightly behind last year's record-breaking pace.

To the north, about 1,250 salmon have passed the Woodbridge Dam on the Mokelumne, said Jose Setka, supervising fisheries biologist for the East Bay Municipal Utility District.
