The month of November this year was an unexpected bonus. While it is normally our wettest month, this year it was relatively dry. We only had a few rainy periods and one week with some snow that all dissppeared. We haven't had an Arctic outflow yet, bet one may be on the way soon according to the forecast.
Eagles are spread out along the Bella Coola River looking for those last coho and today spread out along Highway 20 in various places were parked vehicles with the occupants off looking for pine mushrooms which is quite late. Meanwhile other cars going by had cross country skis on because the hard working trail groomers have 7 kms of trail already groomed at the East Branch skiing/snowmobiling area in Tweedsmuir Park. That's what life is like in the Bella Coola Valley - lots of weather variety to chose from. Grizzly
