Gin Clear

The only way to describe the colour of the Bella Coola River right now is - Gin Clear.  Days of virtually no significant precipitation and cold at night in the mountains mean no turbidity from glacial melt, soil or freshet based sources.  In case you've only been to the Bella Coola Valley in the summer when the river is glacial green and really doubted us locals when we tell you the river goes clear in the winter - take this photo from today as proof.

The weather this morning started out a little uncertain and the -4 C temperature at the Bella Coola Airport was a bit cool, it cleared quickly and was another nice sunny day in Bella Coola.  Grizzly
