July is the prime month to see migrating sockeye salmon through Seattle's Ballard Locks, swimming upstream between Lake Washington and Puget Sound, to get back to their birthplaces to spawn. Thanks to some viewing windows in the side of the locks, you can spot them as they swim. Take a look - and get a free tour of the locks at 1pm or 3pm today, beginning from the Visitor Center.
