The Freezing Line

    The other day on our afternoon walk I couldn’t help but notice the freezing line on the Cariboo Mountain slopes.  You could clearly see where it was below freezing because the snow was still on the trees, below that elevation the temperatures where above freezing causing the snow on the trees to melt.  The temperature that afternoon on the valley bottom was 4C (39F).

    The photo below shows the same freezing line on the Rocky Mountains that run on the opposite side of the Robson Valley.

  1. Oh, look , there is a wild d-o-g in that first picture. :)
    I thought the darker place was probably a cloud going over.
