Winter Survivors

The plant in the photo is the tough and hardy Kinnikinnick (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) plant which is very common.  It's starting to come out of the snow on the sunnier slopes in the valley and it looks as fresh and healthy as when it was under snow.  A tough plant to withstand some of the dry Arctic east winds we get in the Bella Coola Valley.   

No east wind today, just dull grey low clouds and steady rain tonight. Grizzly
