Early Morning Trail Run



 
Saturday morning trail run...
...enjoying the view of Cultus Lake down below
in the low valley fog....

 
...traipsing across a 100ft log...

 
...a tree fallen many years ago...

 
...and enjoying the view
which the clear cuts endow us with...

 
...adding welcome light to the dark forest
high up on Vedder Mountain.
 
Thank you for visiting my blog today!  :  )

Sunshine!

 
Last week's beautiful weather
made for a beautiful drive...

 
...a sunny day is such a delight
during our damp and moisture laden winters.

Warm and Cold

 
Blustery warm winds,
 whipped the flags from the southwest on Thursday...
...straight from Hawaii...

 
...while today the freezing artic outflow winds
whip the flags from the north east,
frigid air straight from the Yukon.
Keep warm everyone!

Change is in the Air

 
Our country road a few weeks ago...

 
...still looking fairly lush and green....

 
Today, the leaves have all fallen
and winter is on the way.
(and my windshield is dirty  :  )

Faded and Fallen

 
Taken a few weeks ago,
these photos show the beautiful colour of the fall leaves...

 
...which have now faded and fallen,
buffeted by wind, rain and frost...

 
..but lovely while it lasted.  :  )

Bear Audience

 
A young black bear sat down, doglike,
and watched us while we watched him
from the safety of the our back deck...
...in mutual admiration.


 
 
 
 

 
Until he had enough,
and wandered to the back of our property..


 
...with a back ward glance
 over his shoulder

...but we are cozy
inside a toasty warm home.  :  )

Place with a View

 
My dear hubby took me along
to show me this wonderful view lot,
where he will be working to wire a new house.
This view lot offers wonderful views of the
might Fraser River north of Hope...

 
...wouldn't this be a wonderful view
to see from your front room window every morning?

Rock Life

Enchanting Falls

 
Today we went to see Flood Falls,
a short hike on a winding wooded path,
a short distance from the road.

 
The falls plunge 1200 feet in 9 distinct drops...
 


 
...but we could only see the bottom 250 feet.



 
The falls flow into a pond and then
the water quietly disappears into the ground.
I wonder where it goes?

Field of Fireweed

 
 
Running along a trail
high up on Vedder Mountain....
....between the tall dark trees,
we caught a glimpse of a beautiful field of pink fireweed ....
 
 
 
 
...in a logged clearing...


 
...with a view of the mountain range behind.

 
What a lovely day!
 
Thank you for visiting!  :  )
