From Chase I followed Little Shuswap Lake through Sorrento to Blind Bay where the dead quiet was shattered by a water skier growling across the silken water. The route was lined with wild flowers as I passed through Sunnybrae Bible Camp where heads were lowered over books.
Not far from Salmon Arm was Herald Provincial Park. The short walk to the falls followed beside the fall’s overflow, packed with tall cedars. The trail was deserted except for a bird fluttering from branch to branch as if following me.
Trees were covered with webs spun around branches. A ghostly sight at night, they were dazzling by day with the sun reflecting off the webs.
