This was my personal playground for 9 days...


I agonized over how to best present my 9-day epic adventure into the remote BC Coast Mountains this past summer.  I wrote a detailed 6-page report, but my writing style is very honest and personal otherwise described as boring.  This would not do my extraordinary experience justice.

Finally I had an epiphany.  I am not a writer, I am a photographer – stick to what I do best.  Any words I write cannot possibly convey how stunning this place was and the feeling that I got from being there.  A photograph can strike you emotionally in an instant and so any photo I post will likely have more impact on you than my words.

So without further ado, I present to you the cumulation of 15 years of hiking, 11 years of SLR photography, 9 days in the wilderness of the BC Coast Mountains, 5 shipments to the Canon repair center, 2 long without a shower and one heck of a nice guy and awesome partner in our very own nwhikers member Larry.



A few teaser photos from the video/slideshow if you don't have time to watch it.
