The Journey Home
Autumn is a wonderful time to travel if you like the colors. But leaving Armstrong made us feel a bit melancholy because we left behind La Chien d'Ora (the Golden Girl), Die Blau Blitzen (the Blue Lightening), and Mama Sita, the three canines, and Miss Round Heels, the nine month old kid, all animals we'd come to really like during our stay. Plus we had thoroughly enjoyed the people, the food, and the natural beauty throughout our travels in BC. Provincial license plates proclaim BC "The Most Beautiful Place on Earth." I think they're right.
Salute to the Sockeye
Red salmon filled the river with the run of the century!
