Hearing the honking of geese overhead is always a sobering sound for us in the Fall. The hummingbirds have disappeared from the Robson Valley, and now other birds are gathering in preparation for their migration south. It means that winter is somewhere over the horizon. We heard and saw this small flock yesterday.
Today is the big day for the solar eclipse. In a perfect world we would see a bit more than 70% of the Sun covered, but the clouds look thick (somewhat like the photo) and there is still a lot of smoke obscuring the mountains, so at this point, with a couple of hours to go, I have my doubts that we will be able to see much of the big event.
