First Taste of Winter

Brent – Styling on the North Shore in Nelson

After a final couple of days of ripping on my mountain bike in hot dry conditions, the long anticipated Fall rains have arrived. I got thoroughly soaked hiking in to replinish the wood supply at a favourite backcountry cabin yesterday, and then today it really pissed down.

Mt Roberts and Record Ridge.

When the clouds finally parted this afternoon we could see the higher peaks of the Rossland Range had received a good coating of snow, and there’s more in the forecast for tonight. I’m going with local folklore, that follwing a great huckleberry season – it’s going to be a HUGE winter in the Kootenays.
