Bella Coola River Estuary

The Bella Coola River estuary is a big and important estuary amongst coastal rivers.  It's important because of the vast number of salmon that come and go through it and the various wildlife species and plants that have evolved in that environment.

It doesn't look very important on a day like today though, dreary, dull and brown are the order of the day.  But you know the days are counting down until the explosion of spring happens again.  Thank God for seasons.  We need spring this year.  Grizzly


  1. I don't know , I always considred the Bella Coola estuary relatively sterile given the lack of salt water. A big AMEN on the spring thing ! O

    1. Even in the winter the estuary is an important area for herring, swans, and hopefully some migrating eulechons in the next few weeks...

      Although I am commenting from Mexico, so can't complain about the weather...
