North! To Prince George

Posted on 11th March 2016 in adventure, nature, wandering

I grew up in Prince George, BC. I’ve always described it as the place smack dab in the middle of BC, though it’s the capital of Northern BC. On a map, it’s pretty perfectly in the center. Driving, it’s about 10 hours north of Vancouver.

Driving from Vancouver one first finds the Fraser Valley, then abruptly turn norther into the winding Fraser Canyon that turns into the North Thompson canyon and then connects back up to the Fraser River to follow it more or less all the way up through the Cariboo to the Central Interior and Prince George. On the way back South, we hooked West at Cache Creek to wind our way through to Pemberton and Whistler before getting back to Vancouver.

In the winter the scenery is brown and muddy and very snowy and icy the further north one goes. In the fall you can expect to find every color of the rainbow in the trees that occupy the landscape that spins by. In the spring and summer everything is green and growing and each of the little lakes and creeks along the way call out, inviting you to jump on in.

Being so long of a drive, and one that I’ve done countless times in my life, I’m usually trying to avoid stopping, rather then stopping to take photographs of anything that catches my eye.

Having a foreign friend – Nene – with me, I took all the back roads and detours I knew! She was all smiles, and “ooh” and “ahhh”. Great travel companion!

Why not cure this severe wanderlust with a collection of landscapes I’ve shot from 2012 to 2014… That’ll do the trick, right?

Many of these photographs have had a whole fotoblog dedicated to them. If you do a search on the left you should be able to find more about the location. Some of these I haven’t released until now.

Please don’t hesitate to ask questions about any of the journeys in the comments below or email me. I love to share stories.

The Cariboo of British Columbia

Posted on 9th July 2012 in adventure, nature

Shortly before I left on my trip to Europe, I drove for one last time from Vancouver to Prince George to… hmm, I forget why I did this trip now…

Anyways, I always love the Cariboo area, specifically around Lac La Hache or Clinton (I guess it’s also called the Chilcotin region). There is just something about the area that really makes me feel like I’m in a beautiful place, perhaps you will understand after looking at some of these photographs. Usually, I end up driving right through them and because the drive is actually pretty long and if I’m stopping every few minutes for more photographs, the trip is even longer..

So, I’ve been trying to pick new areas to stop at along the way to hopefully eventually capture the whole trip, one or two sections at a time.

Cariboo Hill Photo Walk, Burnaby

I love just walking the streets and finding beautiful things in them, our environment is so often forgotten about in pursuits towards more more more.
