Snow-capped Mountains and Not Much Snow Elsewhere

Another first in more than forty years: After a good dump of snow just in time for Christmas, we experienced nothing but mild weather in our Arrow Lakes valley, which made the snow quickly disappear on our highways and along the shoreline of our beloved lake. Then rain started to fall in the first week of January and more rain is in the forecast. This is highly unusual for the Interior of BC. We did not let the fog deter us from going for our daily walks. I tried to capture as much light and colour as possible under the overcast sky. Enjoy.

Near and At the Hart Creek

The Hart Creek provides almost all of Fauquier with fresh mountain water. It originates in the Valkyr Range southeast of our community of some 200 people. Many of the mountains tower over a vast area with a respectable altitude of over 8000 ft. In my younger years, I would take my boys up to Mt. McBride, where after a six-hour strenuous hike we could relax and enjoy the fantastic view. Sometimes, we would even set up camp and stay a day or two in the alpine meadows above the tree line. Today I present to you five photos near the mouth of the creek from a recent evening walk with my wife. Enjoy.
