Something Beautiful Every Day

Hubby and I took an overnight trip up the North side of the Fraser River on the last weekend of January.  Usually a damp, murky time of year here in the Pacific Northwest, this one turned out to be unusually cold and clear. We were headed for the healing mineral pools of Harrison Hot Springs resort, so we couldn't have asked for more cooperative weather gods.

There is nothing quite as satisfying as steeping aching middle-aged bones in a steamy outdoor hot pool while the air around you is crisp and bright. Unless of course, it is following that with side-by-side massages (which, we did - of course!).

Following our self-care sojourn at the spa baths, we meandered homeward along icy side routes and were absolutely captivated by roadside waterfalls turned to ice, covering branches and bushes and clinging to the cliffsides. Such a rare and beautiful site in this part of BC, I just had to share it with you!

Icy fingers point us homeward

  2. Oh thank you for sharing the great ice pictures. And I love the fresh cheery blog look! The 'Spot' picture is perfect! Well done.

    Have a great week.
