A bright November afternoon

My job with Homes & Land Magazine involves plenty of driving around the Lower Mainland meeting clients. Whilst on a rainy miserable day it feels like you could be driving anywhere, there are enough good days to remind me what a beautiful part of the country we live in.

These next few images were taken when I was on my way back from Harrison Mills - about an hour and a half south east of Vancouver. Although this is some distance from the city, the great thing is that lovely views like these can be enjoyed the whole way.

Above and below are views taken from Hwy 7 looking towards the town of Agassiz where the Trans-Canada Highway runs along the opposite side of the valley. The river is Harrison River which flows out of nearby Harrison Lake (source of Harrison Hot Springs we visited when we first arrived).

Below is an image taken again from Hwy 7 but from the otherside of Agassiz, almost at the junction with the Trans-Canada Highway. It is a closer view of the hills that ring the Fraser Valley and you can see that the first snowfalls have arrived on the higher peaks.
