Columbia Ridge News

Well the rain isn't keeping the bears away. Glen Flynn shot this picture of a grizzly from his deck.


I spoke a bit too soon on the weather yesterday. It is still raining and has been creating havoc where ever a major water flow hits a bridge.

If you are thinking of taking the long way here because the highway at Canmore is closed, think again. The bridge at Skookumchuk, 20 km south of Canal Flats was swept away earlier today. They have the bridge at Wasa also closed because they are worried about what could happen in the Skook bridge hits the Wasa bridge. I keep hearing rumours that the bridge at Dutch creek (by the Hoodoos) is closed as well but I was upstream of Dutch Creek today and the forestry bridge is doing fine.

Given what is going on in Alberta and Calgary and all the blowouts here in BC, might be a good idea to stay put where ever you are.
