Long-time naturalist friends, Katie and Dennis, dragged themselves up from the gloom and rain in the Bella Coola Valley to stay in my newly refurbished cabin.
The morning was very foggy.
We took a walk along the McClinchy River. The fog lifted a bit, but it hid the mountains for most of the day.
We climbed up onto the south bluffs.
At the high point we could look towards One Eye Lake, which is just visible in the far distance.Katie and Dennis had visited just in time because overnight the trees began to look threadbare and the colours had started to fade. We did a circular hike and came back through the dwarf birches in the wetlands. Although the colours are fading, they are still beautiful.
