Hoodoos

.

Shadowed sculptures make their stand

Stark and eery

Weathered columns etched from sand

Dry and barren

 .

Rippling pillars mark the land

The Hoodoos at Dutch Creek near Cranbrook, BC

It May Be Winter, But….

Sixteen degrees!* That was the temperature as we returned home to the Fraser Valley on Saturday from our eighteen days in the Okanagan and East Kootenay areas of BC. We drove 2,000 km and never once drove on snow.

We did see snow, of course, but here at the coast the spring crops are already greening. At the moment my DH is washing the truck in the sunshine and thinking of mowing the lawn later this afternoon.

It’s not exactly ideal Winter Olympics weather but it made for great travelling. And after last year’s long snowy winter, I’m not complaining one bit!
