On the Eve of Christmas Eve
Sunday morning came very early after the previous nights Christmas cheer. The alarm begged 5 am but settled for a compromising 5:45. There was no rush to get to the river this morning. Certainly winters late appearance would see to keeping the fair weather presence at home in bed. The drive up was lonely and very relaxing. The silence was welcomed as was the warmth provided by the old pickup's heater and Tim Horton's double double. Checking the Hydrological Site I was pleased to confirm the river graph was indicating a much desirable 1.2M elevation. My access was abandoned and all things were aligning for a classic winter steelheading outing.
