Thompson River voodoos (BC)

It is holiday time.  We travelled   into the Interior of BC after a snow fall and during a cold snap.  The prefect time for some x-country skiing.  We even saw some moose tracks although we did not see the moose. It was a surprise to see the Thompson River  still free of ice with little snow on its banks.   Winter is here to stay for  while.

Wishing everyone good holiday cheer, a Merry Christmas and a great New Year.
