About a ten minute walk from my front door are the Marysville Falls. The falls are in the southern Purcell mountain range and are BC’s oldest sea floor. Read all about how the falls were formed over 1.4 billion years ago at Site Two.
The falls are one of my favorite walks. During the winter, I like to watch the ice form on the falls and in the creek. In Spring, it is always exciting to watch the force of the Spring runoff plunge down the 30 metre drop. Summer is idyllic as the water has slowed. There are even places beside the lower falls to sit and get pictures taken or sit quietly and absorb the murmur of the bubbling water. Fall is lovely with the color change of the foliage along the bank and the sunlight and shadows off the rock walls.
I want to do a photo essay of the falls on a month to month basis. Take this journey with me.
The snow is almost all gone along the creek banks and in the water. There was just a wee bit left by the falls. Spring is coming bringing warmer temperatures and soon the creek will be rolling.
