Kootenay Road Trip 2020 Scenes: The Sun Comes Out in Fernie!

In Fernie we were treated to two days of unseasonably cold and wet weather. Huddled in our small travel trailer we were keenly aware when the temperature dipped below zero one night. And was that a snowflake we saw?

Bad weather doesn’t last forever, of course. And when the skies cleared and the sun returned we were treated to a beautiful sight: the high mountains surrounding Fernie with a dusting of snow. Odd how fall colors below and a little snow above can be so pleasing to the human eye.

In this shot, we are once again looking across the Elk River toward Three Sisters — standing in almost the same spot as we took yesterday’s photo, actually. Only this time you can see the mountains bathed in the warm light of sunrise.

I’m not sure which light I like better — the cool light of a rainy day or the warm glow of a sunrise. How about you? Which do you prefer?
