OLYMPIA, Wash., Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A Washington state motorist captured video of salmon swimming across a road amid flooding from heavy rains.

The video shows salmon taking a short-cut on their way from the Puget Sound to the rivers where they spawn by swimming across the shallow water covering a road amid heavy rains in the area.

"This is why we love Washington," a voice says in the video.

The salmon cross the road in the distance before a large fish, described by an occupant of the vehicle as "a beast," crosses right in front of the car.
