I was happy to see that the ice-covered Fraser River is starting to melt. It will be a while before the river is open, but it is good to see that the process has begun. Once all of the snow on the surrounding land and mountains begin to melt, the sand beaches that you can see in the photo will be submerged as the huge volume of melt-water engulfs them.
I thought I heard some returning geese honking when I took the photo-- all signs of an approaching spring.
