A gray time at Ginty Creek

After Barry had gone I had time to look around.  All the fall colours had gone.  Dull weather added to the gloom.

Here are two clumps spangled by frost.

Despite the gloom, it has been pretty dry with only a few flakes of snow now and then.  Dryness means that the frost does not make big crystals unless the object is close to open water.

  1. Chris,
    I really enjoy reading your Blog. We have had a really mild winter here at the 108 Ranch. I have been writing Haiku’s (natureshaiku.com) with images of the Chilcotin that I have taken on my trips with Chris Harris which you might enjoy. Keep reporting!
