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.

Last night we had a brief period of wet snow in some areas, the kind that sticks and freezes thick on the windshield, but didn't leave too much of a trace in the valley. This kind of snowfall usually makes some spectacular views of the mountains the next day because it tends to stick on the them as well. That was the case today with virtually all the peaks. The photo today is of Salloomt Peak at 1873 m (6145'). It has several Comshells (Communications Shells) on it, one on the top and one down on the left. The one on the left is how part of the Bella Coola Valley gets its internet service through a series of valley bottom and mountain top repeater sites operated by the Central Coast Communications Society.
