Northern BC

Descended into the rain forest of northern BC yesterday. Clouds hanging in the mountains and fisherman lined up along the Skeena. This week someone landed a 45 pound salmon. The town of Terrace is a little sad, though I'm about to head over to the farmer's market where I could find some lively exchange. Otherwise Walmart has shifted the balance of consumer power out to the edge of town so that the mall, and the small downtown area are even more ghostly than they were in this town's economic heyday. More to come. Meanwhile here's a shot of a glacier from the small Dash 8 that I flew up here on. It was flying a bit low for my comfort--I could trace the flight path of birds.
