The Trail

My Slippery Four-legged Holy Grail

My Slippery Four-legged Holy Grail

My quest wasn’t quite to the same scale as Sir Lancelots’ quest for the Holy Grail, no Castle Anthrax, no Bridge Of Death, but it did involve a few epic journeys. Deep in the Chilliwack River Valley lives a creature rarely seen, so mysterious it’s […]

Toads and Bears!

Toads and Bears!

So what if I visit the same place more than four times a year. It’s not just exploring and photographing awesome surroundings, it’s also a great workout! And as usual it’s also a great place to gaze upon loads of wildlife. If you’re interested in […]

Mount Seymour

Mount Seymour

  Following on the heels of the last post and the countless hiking trails Manning Park offers, I figured a hike closer to home would also be good. And on this hump day I figured Mount Seymour’s first hump/peak seemed appropriate. This is a hike […]

Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve

After checking out Belcarra Regional Park yesterday, I headed out to the Seymour Demonstration Forest – which is apparently now called the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve. Visitors to the park are now greeted by the brand new monstrous water treatment facility. The Lower Seymour Conservation […]

Belcarra Regional Park

This morning I took a nice walk along the shore through Belcarra Regional Park. Tucked quietly away in Burrard Inlet at the mouth of Indian Arm, it provides visitors a piece of serenity in the midst of suburbia. The park is filled with towering skyscraper-like […]
