Fall is such a wonderful time of the year here in the Peace River Country. The nights are getting longer and cooler and there is a smell in the forest that is hard to describe and signals the change in season.
Family from the Kootenays came up with their 5th wheel for a visit so most evenings were spent outside around a firepit, kids roasting marshmallows and adults talking late into the dark.
What a sky we have! It's like an amphitheater above stretching from horizon to horizon.
Each night the sunsets have been spectacular! The sunsets have been followed by the most amazing night sky full of countless stars and a waning moon. Being serenaded by coyotes completes the scene.
There is something timeless and mesmerizing about being outside late into the night, telling stories of childhood adventures and sharing hopes for the future.
This is a great time of the year!
