A blog about life in the Bella Coola Valley and the Central Coast area of British Columbia for anyone interested in an incredible and rich part of BC's coast. I hope to provide my thoughts about things as simple as weather observations and seasonal issues, to comments about life and the natural history in the Bella Coola Valley, the Central Coast and the west Chilcotin area.

No other way to describe today than just plain grey. Near freezing in the morning and back to the same tonight, a couple little snow and rain showers along the way. Mid day was the best and it looked pretty nice to the east. The snow had a bit of crust on it today from freezing overnight.
Someone asked if the black-tail deer are in the rut in the valley, and my answer would be yes. I have a seen a couple in the last 10 days that have that glazed-over wanderlust look in their eyes and unconcerned about vehicles and people. Seems to me Remembrance Day is right around the peak of the coastal black-tail rut. Grizzly
