Southwest British Columbia:
July 1, 2005: A reader writes:
We have had a place on the lake in the southwestern British Columbia, for 14 years, with never a sighting until the 29th of June, 2005, at 11:30 PM. We have had an extraordinary amount of rain this year. Our cabin is on a small lake , the forest in primarily spruce, pine, poplar and aspen. The lake is in a valley. Our elevation is 3400 feet. There is a lot of red willow, marsh grass, a few hay fields. The night of the sighting there was a cloud cover. We had the Christmas tree lights on at the edge of the lake, to add to the ambience! There were about 6 fireflies! I felt I was part of a fantasy! I had been so envious of my friend who had seen them in Japan. I truly have been moved by this experience.
