Bella Coola Valley Part Two

I was down in the Bella Coola Valley for 5 days.  Most of the time it rained.

Courbold's cabinKatie and Dennis’s property at Stuie houses four cabins drowned in trees.

The sun poked through occasionally.  One morning I was lucky enough to catch the sunrise light on Mt Supendous as it appeared briefly among the clouds.

About wilderness dweller

I have lived for more than 30 years as a Wilderness Dweller. Most of that time was in cabins I built myself far from the nearest road, high in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. My "retirement" home is accessible by a bush road but still far from neighbours. I live off the grid, and operate this blog by solar-powered satellite internet.
