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.

With the longer days starting to have an effect on plants, the colours in the Red Osier Dogwood (Cornus stolonifera) , a smallish shrub very common on the coast starts to really show its red bark. It was nicely contrasted against a Willow shrub that is doing the same but only developing a nice deep green as the winter grinds along.
Another nice day in the Bella Coola Valley, but clouds moved in and some change in weather is coming. Grizzly
