For mountain climbing and hiking enthusiasts, Colorado offers many mountains that rise above 14,000-feet of elevation (these mountains are known as “the fourteeners”). Those mountains are beautiful and challenging, but they can also get more crowded than some hikers prefer. Mountains in the 13,000-foot range (“thirteeners”) tend to be the preference for people who like a hiking challenge on a trail that may be less congested. You might think of the King Salmon like a fourteener—with a well-deserved reputation and considered an icon the Alaska waters. If the King Salmon is a fourteener, the Silver Salmon may be the “thirteener”: not necessarily thought of first, but still well worth the effort and deserving of its stellar reputation.
Of all the many animal species in Alaska, several tend to come to mind first. The grizzly bear, the wolf, caribou, and the moose are probably the most iconic land dwellers in Alaska. Among the water dwellers, it is the salmon that best characterizes the forty-ninth state. And among all the species of salmon, the King salmon (also known as the Chinook salmon) reigns supreme. A case could be made for the King salmon as the most iconic species in all of Alaska, given its tremendous numbers, its culinary appeal, and the fact that fishing for King salmon often puts you in close proximity to the grizzly bear.
