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.

The Chilcotin region of BC is a large area. So large that after 30 years of exploring my wife and I still have not been to all the corners being that it is some 300+ kms by 300+kms as a region. We decided for Thanksgiving weekend we would look around because the weather forecast was so good. It was nice (-8 C in the morning) and very beautiful fall days. On the Chezacut Road area we explored some interesting Ducks Unlimited project areas, which will definitely warrant a return in the spring when many waterfowl and other birds will be in the area.
I almost had the pair of cowboy boots that I've always wanted at an abandoned ranch building from a bygone era, but decided to let them pass into history a little longer. Grizzly
