Today Doug and I cross-country skied along the rail-grade that runs from South Slocan to Slocan City. The rail-grade is non-motorized - what a joy - and runs gently uphill to Slocan City. While not wilderness, a ski, hike or bike along the rail-grade makes a pleasant and largely peaceful outing.
As we skied south on our return, silvery light was playing across the Slocan River and onto the trees fringing the river, seemingly almost to dance up to the mountains of the Bonnington Range. As ethereal as mist, I could not capture it with my camera.
