This is just a collection of pictures of the ginty creek fall colours. No words are necessary. It was a wonderful fall – interestingly, the fall after the 2017 fires was also brilliant.
The fire in the background. You can see my neighbour’s roof but my house is hidden.
I made another trip to Bella Coola. Not such nice weather going down.
The colours are later there, but at the first switchback was a carpet of a grass species – don’t know the name but it’s always colourful.
And scattered around were vivid mountain ashes.
At Stuix, I met Tara Weir, an avid long-distance cyclist. We had corresponded by email and she would be the fourth cyclist I hosted who had come up the Bella Coola Hill.
She agreed to stay for a couple of days and we FINALLY got the firewood in. It had been a huge job for me alone. The road workers had also left a few holes that needed filling, and on day two we shovelled gravel (purloined from the forestry gravel pit.).
She left on a back-road trip via Chilco lake and Farwell Canyon. She had great fall colours all the way.
Hard on her heels came a man I knew slightly. He lives in Williams Lake, and this is the third year he has walked part of the Chilcotin pulling a hand cart.
He stayed the night – good choice as it absolutely poured rain. So, naturally, I put him to work as well!
The day he left was stormy – not too much precipitation here but wild clouds over the mountains and a bitter wind. The fall colour brilliance was over.

Absolutely love the photo of the beautiful grasses on the corner and the one of the Mt. Ashes too!
The colours haven’t really started here- maybe further down island.
