Smoky Sunrise

August 30th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Travel|

Yesterday I had two morning site visits to make on the Island, and an afternoon meeting at the Biological Station. Since two others were coming along and they were both from the Station, I opted out of the ferry and one of them did the driving. I love taking the float planes across the Strait, [...]

Out for a little drive

August 29, 2017 - This past Sunday we decided that we’d neglected the backroads for too long. Since we got the motorcycles we've not played out on the Forest Service roads that we used to ply back when we still had the old truck. When I was up at Gates Creek a couple of weeks [...]

August 2, 2017 - There was only one thing on the agenda today, work. And work hard. There are four creeks that the facility takes and releases chum to: Snootli Creek, Thorsen Creek, Saloompt Creek, and Fish Creek at the Airport Channel. Each has a fence installed at this time of year, the fence traps [...]

Back in Bella Coola

August 1, 2017 - I usually come up to Bella Coola in September, for a couple of days of Chinook collection on the Atnarko. It’s usually a couple of amazing days of drift boats, tangle nets, big fish, and lots of grizzly bears. But I thought I’d switch it up this year since I have [...]

July 18, 2017 - After a day filled with interesting talks, many on topics Ive never thought much about or even been exposed to before but which were very educational, it was out for dinner with former UBC family. After we parted ways I walked back to my hotel, grabbed my camera, and went for [...]

Visit to the Provincial Capital

July 16, 2017 - I’m in Victoria for a few days for a conference. Not a conference I’ve attended before, and although it’s definitely related to what I do, it’s unrelated to anything I’ve ever formally studied, but I thought it pertinent as a learning experience. And that means not a lot of people I [...]

Day 342 – Fuel

December 7th, 2016|Photo a Day - The Rest of 2016?|

December 7, 2016 - The conference I am at is in the Great Wolf Lodge, which is heaven for children. The kids are already jacked up on their magical quests and the indoor water park, so a rainbow array of sugary jelly beans to fuel them seems..... logical. This place is a weird venue choice [...]
