Welcoming Mountains

    Yesterday I mentioned that you see mostly trees on the drive from McBride to Prince George.  On the return trip, in places you can catch quick views of mountains off in the distance, but it is not until you get into the Robson Valley that the mountains become a prominent part of the landscape.  It is always a welcoming sight to suddenly be nestled in the flat valley of the Rocky Mountain Trench, with the mountain ranges sloping up on both sides.
    The other day as I was returning from Prince, there was some nice light and the shadows of clouds playing across the slopes of the Park Range of the Canadian Rockies and in the foreground a blanket of dandelions in the pasturelands provided a nice yellow-green accent color.
