I was poking around online maps in the morning trying to figure out a day trip destination and I found mention of the Cornice Ridge Trail starting at the Bridal Lake rest area. I briefly glanced at the information page (https://www.crestonvalleytrails.ca/trails/cornice-ridge/) before heading out to

I was heading down the Skagit River Trail from the Sumallo Grove parking lot in Manning Park to kill some time, and also to make sure I could easily find the marker for the Silverdaisy Mountain trail for an upcoming trip. Not far from that

My older Nikon 24-85mm lens is the only lens I currently have with macro ability, so I make sure to keep it in my day trip camera bag for photos of plants and insects. Typically I like doing wide angle landscapes but I would like

June 10 – Cache Creek / Hwy 1

  For this trip I took one of my favorite drives along Highway 8 around Spences Bridge in order to look for trains along Highway 1 (Trans Canada) between Lytton and Cache Creek. While I did find some potential spots to do some shooting from,

  A frequent drive for me is Highway 6 from the Castlegar area up toward New Denver. This winding highway goes up into the mountains and also down around Slocan Lake. This particular spot is actually the Slocan Lake viewpoint which you can stop at

  One of my favorite drives is around the Slocan Valley and on this particular trip I was originally planning to check out a waterfall up past Nakusp. On my return trip I figured there was enough daylight left to quickly head up Highway 31A
