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.
