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.

One of the things that makes the Bella Coola Valley an interesting place to live is the variations in local climate. If you live West of Hagensborg, then the photo above is what you can expect your yard to look like today.
If you live East of Hagensborg in the slightly more snowy zone the photo below is more like what your yard will look like today. It's all about the mountains and coastal/interior influence. It works both ways though, because in the summer time and in the rainy season it's cooler and wetter west of Hagenborg than the drier and warm environments east of Hagensborg which are further through the coast mountains and more exposed to interior influence.
While the Robins are showing up west of Hagensborg, residents east of Hagensborg are still prepared to shovel. Grizzly
