It’s been a particularly cold and snowy winter this year in South Western BC. Considerable snowfall and cold Arctic outflow winds have made for frosty conditions, large snowbanks and sketchy driving conditions around town and along the highway. The roads are in poort shape, significant maintenance will be required come the Spring. It’s been really … More A real winter!
Every winter, large numbers of Bald Eagles come from all directions on the North American continent and congregate along the coast of Southern BC. Squamish sees a great number of these birds who return to feast on the Salmon runs in the many converging rivers at the top of Howe Sound. I volunteer with a … More Eagle Watch – Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park. Squamish, BC
I went for a ride today to take advantage of the glorious and kind of surprising sunny-ish day! I stopped to try and capture a photo of Lukla and I before heading back out of the forest. It was a bit clunky to setup, I used the intervalometer built into the camera after finding a … More Fall Riding & awkward selfies

Take some of the gloomy weather that was around on May long weekend (of course) mix it with the sun disappearing behind the mountains and then blanket it in a Cottonwood explosion. The result is a perfect Cottonwood Storm.
Taking to the air for a better look at the geographical features of Garibaldi Provincial Park and the surrounding area. It was a hot and kind of smoky morning in the Squamish valley when we headed to the Squamish airfield. After a short time we were on the runway and bound for the sky. We … More Scenic Flights from Squamish
Another Aurora experience for me this weekend. I was absolutely stunned at what I witnessed above me as I stood in the darkness and gazed at the beaming and dancing display of light and colour. I was out both Friday and Saturday nights. Friday night I shot a few exposures of the stars and planets … More Incredible night skies this weekend
Saturday saw a surprisingly sunny and beautiful day unfold that was not expected. Seizing the opportunity, I thought I would take Lukla on her very first blast down one of my favourite local trails, Rupert. On the way back I explored a trail I haven’t ridden before and discovered some interesting sections of trail and … More Biking in the sun, Hiking in the rain
Took a spin up around the lakes to a new trail to check it out. We found Girvin Gearsprocket for the first time and also discovered some new viepoints to keep in mind for photography in unique conditions. The dirt in the trails was perfect, and the forest was glowing green. Thick cloud layers hung … More First Spring(ish) ride
