My Hometown

Terrace, British Columbia is a town of about 10,000 people situated along the Skeena River in northwestern, B.C.  Surrounded by mountains, it is breathtakingly beautiful throughout the year, but I especially love the summer nights that stay light past 11 pm.

I'd never heard of Terrace before I met my husband in California, and I never suspected I'd make my home here, but the longer I stay, the more it grows on me. I took this picture during Christmas break last year on a beautiful, sunny morning. Moment by moment as the sun rose, the shadows on the mountains changed.

This photo was taken at one of my favorite spots; the old cemetery, which looks north upon this mountain range, and south over the whole river valley. It's hard to make out the valley in this photo, but I had to capture the sunrise, since I missed it on the Solstice (a cloudy day). Year after year I watch the sun come up on December 21st. You don't have to get up early here to catch the sunrise on Solstice morning; it comes up at about 9:53 am here in Terrace.
