Yesterday I got back on our old trail and walked down to the Fraser River. I hadn’t been down there for a while and was surprised to see the huge sandbar on the far side. As freezing temperatures engulf the alpine areas in the fall and winter, the amount of water that generally flows into the Fraser River diminishes and so the water level goes down, causing the sandbars to appear.
I always felt a bit cheated that the sandbar beaches that form are on the opposite side of the river. On our side all we get is a steep bank.
