Over the holidays my daughter and I went for an exploratory stroll on the Bella Coola River estuary, which is one of the top estuaries on the coast for overall importance of fish, wildlife, waterfowl and people.  It's a nice place to go in the winter when you are tired of the frozen snow covered ground further up the valley.  There were numerous ducks and the normal Trumpeter Swans enjoying the ice free conditions and food abundance that they can access in the marshy areas.  It's wintery looking for an estuary in terms of lots of rotting vegetation and not much greenery, but still a nice break.

Today brought more good weather, although there was the lightest dusting of snow in the middle valley area, just barely enough to make things look frosty, but -1 to +1 C was the order of the day again.  Grizzly
