Dried Up Springs

    The other day I biked up the road a bit.  Because our road runs along a mountain slope, there are numerous springs that feed springlets that trickle down to the ditch beside the road.  Due to the severe draught the Robson Valley is experiencing, those springlets and the ditch are all bone dry.  As well, the thick pillows of moss that line the springlets have turned from lush green to a dead-looking brown. 

    All of this is very scary, and I am sure hoping that we get a heavy snowfall this winter so the hydrology of the area can start returning to normal.  The weather we have gotten this summer is not what a Temperate Inland Rainforest should be experiencing.

You can look at my paintings:
