The Watcher of the Similkameen

Everyone in the Central Similkameen sees this watcher watching them from the eagle cliffs.

Colonial Culture Calls it Daly Mountain. How long before we no longer remember that?

When we were in school fifty years ago, we were taught that this is an instance of a “hanging valley,” a common glacial feature. No one mentioned that we were being watched, and so we thought we weren’t. I wonder how long it will be before everyone checks the watcher for the news every day. What, after all, can you expect a face to do but watch?
