I was up in the Yukon a few years ago for the Yukon Quest and some other touri stuff.

The dogs were great and were well taken care of. Owners loved them.

We just had an unfortunate incident up in Whistler where dogs were murdered by a dog-sledding operator. This happened after the season last year
when all the tourists went home and the snow melted, I think 100 out of 300 dogs were shot and knifed and thrown into a mass grave.

Why were they not dealt with in a humane way? Total greed situation easier just to do away with the dogs at the end of the season rather than find homes for them.

Why have so many dogs if you have to cull at the end of the season?

This company should be exposed and have their business license taken away. They are beautiful animals.

Golden Ears Provincial Park

Rain January. The thing about the East side trail is that it follows Gold Creek till it becomes braided and meandering about 6km from the parking lot before it peters out.

The thing that’s great about it, is that no one is on the trail especially in the winter months.
In the summer the park is pretty busy ……. now no one.

Ride your bike like the shot shows. You can not ford this this tributary stream without taking off your boots if you’re hiking … with a bike you can power through…. don’t lose your balance though or you’ll get wet.

It was fetid but great with mist and rain enveloping us, mossy understory and some storybook settings deep in the trees where you expect a gnome or a hobbit to peer out. Ride it, I think its in my book mtb adventures in SWBC.

I rarely capture stills from video but I liked this one. Photos don’t have to be sharp to convey the atmosphere. I masked a couple of copies and digitally crafted the colour this what I got.

just posted this 2 months late filmed in a rainstorm camera d7000 in ziplock bag, marcus and I on a tear over rock water and trail.

I like this shot I was inspired by viv maier whose work was found in an abandoned storage container and purchased by a real estate agent in the eastern states for 400 dollars.

Historic find beautiful artful photos that document life in the 50’s and sixties. A female Fred Herzog of Chicago. A solitary French nanny with a 2.25. Check it out.

The couple shot here … I like for a bunch of different reasons, but not obviously the watermarks because it it such a good stock shot it can be easily ripped, it might be nice in Maui right now its raining here in Vancouver.

Happy New Year.

First image of the year posted here art nature original 10000 pixels square. Big print fine art paper.

This is from British Columbia in the Coast Range in the area known as Granite Country. Want to go?

False Hellibore is kind of a lush alpine plant, grows quite big, the first frost hits it pretty good as most of the plant is fleshy full of water. Like us guess the first frost would hit us pretty good too if we were naked and alpine think we’d wilt at the edges??

Found this hiding in a small granite cove surrounded by avalanche debris. I figured I was lucky.
