During those times when I have been at the seashore, I got great pleasure out of just being able to look out at that large expanse of blue and its ever changing appearance due to the light. I get the same pleasure out of the mountains that run along both sides of the Robson Valley.
I am always impressed at just how blue our mountains can appear. I always think back to 1968 when I bought the Byrds’ Sweetheart of the Rodeo album and first heard the song “In the Blue Canadian Rockies”. I can assure you after living beside them all these years, the Canadian Rockies often are literally blue.
