Forest fire creates a spectacular crimson sun

A red sun I would rather not see. Fires rage over Southwest British Columbia. This smokey haze was seen from Burke Mountain in Coquitlam. Fires from Pemberton, Port Hardy and Kelowna rage on. Myself and  my neighbours could smell the smoke and felt our lungs heavy.  How we take our clean air for granted.

This last week a heat wave swept through Northwestern US (Oregon and Washington State) and the Southwest of British Columbia, Canada.  See the CBC news web site for more  pictures on the fire.

Ducks and Chicks at Bear Park

Morning Siesta at Bear park on Burke mountain. This family took up residency at the small pond, they started with 8 chicks, one was sick and died. Some may fall victim to predators like eagles and coyotes.
