One of the most unusual, yet stunning landscapes that I saw in the Cariboo-Chilcotin. Massive hoodoos and BC’s largest sand dune line the shores of the vibrant Chilcotin river in Farwell Canyon. It would be worth a trip back in the summer to see it in its prime! #explorebc #ccclives

Riske Creek, British Columbia

The warm spring weather we have been experiencing lately has me dreaming of the long summer days ahead.

Northern Rockies

While flying around the summit of Tantalus Mountain recently our pilot told us the story of how it got its name. Legend has it a local mountain climber was "tantalized" by the sight of the range's impressive and rugged spires from across the chaotic waters of the Squamish River.
Totally makes sense to me.

Tantalus Range

A good place to look to make your problems seem small and insignificant.

Mt. Baker

The Aiguille d’Entréves, a classic ridge traverse. Looking back on the scenic approaches and endless views we had during our time in Chamonix.

Massif du Mont-Blanc

Love those clear days when you can see Mount Baker towering over the city. Can’t wait to look out over Vancouver from the summit one day.

Vancouver, British Columbia

This recent trip to the @carchicoa I quickly realized that it’s the people that really make any sort of travel truly memorable. I met a handful of the locals who inhabit these open stretches of land and they were some of the most genuine and kind hearted people willing to do anything to help you out. It’s something that you don’t find as often in bigger cities. The slow paced lifestyle out there is refreshing and highly addictive. #exploreBC #CCCLives

Canim Lake, British Columbia

The Canim River snaking its way east through the Cariboo Plateau into Wells Gray Provincial Park. There’s so much to see out here, already looking to come explore more of this region in the summer. #exploreBC #CCCLives

Canim Lake, British Columbia

This photo pretty well sums up my time in the Cariboo Plateau so far. Tons of quality time spent with animals and local characters on ranches in @hellobc's interior. The slow paced lifestyle and genuine friendliness received here is refreshing and highly addictive, it's been awhile since I've felt so relaxed and at home while traveling.

Flying U Ranch

Great day to fly a kite.

Bow Glacier

After reaching the summit of Mount Olive while dealing with subzero temperatures, nasty winds and whiteouts, we agreed that conditions were going to be too dangerous to continue on to finish the Wapta Traverse. Not an easy choice to make after months of planning and excitement but you have to respect the mountains and conditions. At the end of the day we still had a blast and made it out safely, and that’s all that matters!

Wapta Icefield

Battling winds as we made our way up onto the Wapta Icefield. A harsh landscape that can instantly humble you.
