Visit to the Burton Flats

Yesterday, the air was crisp after a frosty night. Still, the sun came out with the full brilliant force to warm and light up brilliantly the morning landscape of our beloved Arrow Lakes. A ten-minute drive from Fauquier going north on Highway 6, we visited the so-called Burton Flats. This low-lying area was once productive agricultural land. It got flooded when BC Hydro built a dam near Castlegar. The lake level is so low around this time of the year that one can see how narrow the Columbia River once was. There my wife and I went for a long walk to the original river bank. The following is a small sample that we brought home from our outing. Enjoy.

More Fall Pictures

The fall season is very short in the Arrow Lake region. I collected a few images from past years to post them here with the emphasis on the beauty of the landscape with its autumnal colours. In another week or so winter will announce its presence with frost and snow. Enjoy the beauty of fall while it lasts.
