Breaking the Grizzly Bear Curse

grizzly bear viewing BC Canada

One week before heading to the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast in BC Canada, I had this show up in my inbox: “The Chinook Salmon are showing good numbers but it is the Sockeye that the Grizzlies key in on. The Sockeye run is a little later than usual and at this point smaller than some predicted. […]

How to Make Fall Last

fall photography tips

Fall is probably my favorite time of year. I love the cool, crisp weather, and the thought of bundling up, drinking bourbon, and eating apples and comfort food. I also love the fall because of the colors, smells, and of course photography. Some people say fall colors happen fast, you typically only get a couple […]

Into the Wild To Meet A Bear

October 20, 2014 7 Comments »

I’m a bear viewing virgin, I’ve never seen a bear in the wild, which I suppose to some people that seems like a good thing. However, I’ve always wanted to see a bear in the wild, not because I’m some weirdo with a death wish, but it’s simply because I’d like to see one in […]

Going Remote for Luxury

October 14, 2014 5 Comments »

My shoes squeak against the rubber ‘no-slip’ mat of the walkway, the air is heavy and the walkway sways ever so slightly reminding me I’m not on solid ground – I’m actually floating. Heavy mist and fog blanket the area in the morning making you feel like the trees are somehow magnets collecting the low […]

Sullivan Bay in Photos

October 7, 2014 8 Comments »

“See you next year” Fraser yells as he backs out our boat from the dock and waves to the man on the dock. You can tell they’ve known each other for years. This is the last day the little floating village of Sullivan Bay is operating for the season. They are all packed up and […]

Where to Find Summer Adventure

April 29, 2014 4 Comments »

Hugo raced up the dirt road driving like a mad man in the beat up truck that looked like it was held together with duct tape. Dirt flew as we rounded hairpin turns way faster than I was comfortable with. We screech to a halt at the top of the mountain when we could go […]

A Golden Find in the Canadian Rockies

January 2, 2014 13 Comments »

Sigi’s face lit up as he told us about the town’s masterpiece – the timber pedestrian bridge that crossed over the Kicking Horse River. Sigi Liebmannat, the bridge architect and Master Timberframer, was pointing out construction elements and telling us the story of how a little town like Golden, Canada came to have the longest […]

Hiking in Yoho Park

November 8, 2013 7 Comments »

Calgary was surprisingly flat and barren. As we drove away from the airport it felt like a modern Ulaanbaatar – the steppe – no trees and rolling hills with tons of subdivisions. This wasn’t at all what I was expecting when I thought of traveling to the Canadian Rockies. But Peter assured me that the […]

Bringing Adventure Travel to Canada

Rudi’s eyes crinkled when he warmly smiled making me immediately feel connected and comfortable with him. His silver hair peeked out from beneath his brown felt ranger-like hat. My gaze followed from his hat down to his silver lariat around his neck, his embroidered shirt, wool blazer, knickers (not the UK version) and rested on […]

Stanley Park bike path

Disclosure: Club Carlson compensated me and provided for my travel and accommodations in exchange for writing about my travels with them. Regardless, everything I have said in the post reflects my honest observations and opinions. Apparently Mother Nature got the memo that I was going to be in Vancouver as she put on her best […]
