Alouette River, BC

 Alouette River
in British Columbia, Canada
is one of the those places that you can
go back to time and time again,
and see something different.
What fascinates me
is the confluence of
the Pitt and Alouette Rivers.
This is the area where
sturgeon fish abound. Here, there
are the white and green sturgeon,
as well as 5 species of salmon and trout
including Dolly Varden, rainbow, bell,
and cutthroat.
The First Nations people
have fished here for years
The Katzie history
tells of the creation of this area.
The whole landscape is seeped in
rich biodiversity.
Bogs and marshes
as well as a unique fresh water marsh,
are located here.
An amazingly rich habitat right
on our very doorstep.
The more I learn about it
the more I am drawn back
to her beauty.
