Photo gallery: Camping at Chatcolet

We just spent our third weekend camping! That’s three times already this year, doubling the amount of times we’ve been camping with My American since we started dating in 2010. We’ve done two trips to Bumblebee near Kingston, Idaho, and our most recent  was to our regular Memorial Day haunt, Chatcolet at the southern trip […]

A gem in the middle of nowhere

It’s been all over my Facebook and RSS feeds. Some people tag or DM me and say, “You’d be perfect for this.” I smile and think, “Been there, done that.” Associated Press picked up a recent story from The Missoulian, detailing the droves of volunteers who signed up for the opportunity to spend a month at […]

Archives: A jumping-off point

Few locations in Central Alberta are photographed as frequently as the East Coulee bridge. It serviced trains and vehicles crossing the Red Deer River and provided access and service to two mines. Both mines were left to rot when the coal-mining industry dried up but the Atlas has been turned into an historical site. The bridge is […]

Healing time

It’s a beautiful, blue-sky day in Eastern Washington. Part of me wants to hit the road and go somewhere fun. Today, however, my beautiful Bella is recovering from surgery. It was time to get her spayed and add on a prophylactic gastropaxy (a procedure in a which her stomach is attached the chest cavity to […]

Two photowalks, one week

November?!?!? November was the last time I wrote about an adventure? Shame. What’s worse is how much time I have on my hands these days. In late January, Bella and I packed up a U-Haul and moved to Spokane, Wash., to join Our American in our Happily Ever After. And I’m not allowed to work. […]

Do you see enough?

I try to take a 360-degree approach when I’m out exploring and taking pictures. I take some shots of what I see, then turn and turn and turn, making sure I don’t miss anything. Some places draw me back for more. Dorothy, the Atlas Mine and Rawley are my Alberta favourites. I’m keeping a mental […]

Autumn in the Okanogan

This is my favourite time of year for shooting. I’m always excited by the bright reds, yellows and oranges against a brilliant blue sky. Since I moved back to B.C. temporarily, I’ve passed by this lake countless times, en route to Spokane or Omak to visit My American. We spent last weekend in Omak with […]

Time travelling to junior high

I’d already been yelled at once. When I heard footsteps behind me, I thought, ‘oh great, here we go again.’ I wasn’t in trouble. The fellow seemed rather pleasant, so I asked, ‘oh dear, am I trespassing?’ Yep, I sure was. I apologized profusely and thought I should leave, but the fellow was in the […]

C2H: Our first hike

“Are you going to start hiking again,” someone asked when she learned of Bella’s addition to the family. When Shep’s old age started to creep up on us, our hikes in the Rocky Mountains became short strolls in the lowlands. We couldn’t do extended days to the Ink Lakes anymore. We had to stick to […]
