Overcast with light rain this morning. Wispy clouds are sitting low on the ridges, creating a rather surreal vista. Temperature is mild (15C), which is a welcome relief from the unseasonably HOT temperatures we’ve had the past few days. This light rain should help dampen the fire (Meadowland Creek prescribed burn in the west end of Willmore) and clear the smoke.
We are in our gorgeous Indian Summer in the mountains, with the poplars and aspen showing off their fall colors. Peak color should occur in another week or so. Of note, there are no buffalo berries this year – a vital fall food source for the Grizzly.
