It has been a very snowy week with Tuesday morning being especially nice....every spruce tree decorated with huge dollops, the bare branches and twigs of the poplars outlined in white and above the charmed landscape, a promising blue sky.
Later, a breeze came up, and the snow flew off the trees in a blinding whirlwind.
Last week we drove up to historic Fort St. James and had a very pleasant walk under a magnificent autumn sky.
Situated on Lakeshore Drive is Our Lady of Good Hope Church (right) which was built in 1873. The small log cabin to the left of this pretty wooden church was where Father Morice, an Oblate missionary priest who arrived in Fort St. James in 1885, printed the Carrier prayer books and a Carrier language newspaper.
