La Grande Falaise is seen here in all its wintry glory on this marvellous day. Photo #1 is a sideways close-up taken at the same spot as photo #2 on my way out to MacKenzies Mountain on Saturday, though from the opposite side of the road. A dusting of snow fills in the chinks in its face, but there is, compared to other rock faces, comparatively little cover and the gorgeous brick red hues have no trouble getting through. Given the snow one sees along the slopes at the left of the photo, this must be because of its sheer face and is perhaps also due to the strong winds which buffet it from the Gulf. In any case, a gorgeous vision!
Photo #2 better shows the lingering snows from Thursday’s storms on the evergreens, whose boughs are bent under the weight. The peak of Jerome Mountain is at the centre of the photo, to the right of La Grande Falaise. The hillsides at the right are those seen in the last photo of the previous page lining La Rigwash-à-Bernard. It is interesting as well to observe how much less snow has fallen here than on the Highlands not that much further north.
