Snootli Peak

It was supposed to be a nice sunny day all day today in the Bella Coola Valley, but that never worked out.  It was still quite pleasant though with no rain or significant weather.  The Bella Coola River is extremely low, everyday it seems to drop a tiny bit more, typically we reach the lowest point sometime in April, just before the warm weather starts the spring freshet, so if it keeps going as it is, the river will be very low by then.

The views were good though today - this shot is Snootli Peak at 7,651 feet (2,332 metres) located south of the Bella Coola valley at the headwaters of Snootli Creek.

CTV weather lady Tamara Taggart on the 6 PM News said that Bella Coola will have 16 C tomorrow, so we'll see if she is right.  Often Bella Coola is the hottest place in BC and sometimes Canada in April and May, while the rest of the country shakes off winter, but March is a little bit early to be getting too hot.  Grizzly
