I’ve been hiding in Prince George, Northern British Columbia’s capital, all winter. Needless to say, we get snow and lots of it. Having the dog, Angus, with me here, I’ve enjoyed going for long walks daily with the dog. It’s nice now that the snow is gone, as it makes walking easier and less clothing required, but walking in the snow is also a beautiful thing.
I have spent a lot of my lifetime in and around Heffley Creek, BC, Canada. My mother grew up there, and I’ve many cousins, aunties, uncles, and a grandmother there. It’s one of those places that is easy to drive through and not pay any attention to since I’ve been through there so many times. It’s also one of those places that has changed so much since I was young.
In the middle of the winter of 2012, in December, I drove through there on my way North, and found myself upon a day of such bright blue and fresh snow that I had to photograph it extensively. No, I never got stuck once.
Looking at the photos, I realize that only the first image is on the edge of Heffley Creek, the rest are on the road up to Sun Peaks, and then the Knouff Lake Rd and Vinsulla Knouff Lake Rd, if that means anything to you…
