Today vs Yesterday

With the passage of the Arctic air into the Bella Coola Valley and the Central Coast, it means putting up with cold and wind, but at least we'll get some spectacular days of nice blue skies and mountain views.  Today was one of those days.  At lunch today it was hard to decide which view to take a photo of because it was so dramatic in all directions, so I'll include two photos today.  The top photo is near the same spot and view as yesterday's post.

The photo below is the view of the snow capped Mount Nusatsum which is always spectacular in darn near any season and light.  At -5 C and wind in the 30 km/h range from the east most of the day, it was a pretty good day for an Arctic outflow day.  Grizzly

  1. I blew up that second photo; beautiful! It makes me so homesick!

    Winter in the Bella Coola valley was always hard work, especially using wood heat, keeping animals, and living in Firvale; I used to follow the school bus down valley in the morning, driving in Marvin's tracks in the fresh snow until we reached someplace where other vehicles had already broken ground.

    But the daily sight of those snowy mountains was worth every minute of it.
