Now that it's officially summer, it's only fitting that we should have a fine summer day! It was the nicest day in the Bella Coola Valley in several weeks and made for a beautiful summer day and evening on our first full day of summer.
The dry weather also means that the Black Cottonwood trees in the valley are in full seed production. As soon as the sun starts to heat the air around mid morning the seeds pods start to 'crack' open and release all the fluffy cotton seeds that drift aimlessly throughout the valley. The photo is of one the complete flowers that broke off and is releasing its seed on the ground.
24 C in the Bella Coola Valley today. Grizzly
