The best for last: Hedley, B.C.

Sometimes, you don’t find what you’re looking for until you’re near the end of the road. Shep and I saddled up for an escape on Sunday and busted the open highway, bound for Hedley. I’d heard about the mine on the side of the mountain, about miners falling out of their cabins … to their […]

It’s adventure season!

It has felt like one long, cold winter. That’s with apologies to my friends and family on the other side of the Rockies, of course … from Alberta all the way to Atlantic Canada. Helloooooooooo, Newfoundland! Have you dug out of those snowbanks yet? In Alberta, I was known to break out the camera for […]

Sneaking around in Cawston, B.C.

It had been too long since we’d gone on an abandoned adventure. Life has been getting in the way. Shep and I moved twice since August, one to Summerland and two months later into West Kelowna. And then real drama struck. Shep became very ill and I almost lost my precious boy. While he was […]

We have a new home … again

Life can change in the blink of an eye. About a month ago, I was furiously packing up the apartment in Kamloops and getting ready to move Shep and me to a new home. I knew from the moment I set foot back in Kamloops last November that it was a temporary stay, no matter […]

Tough broads make great history

I come from a long line of tough broads. My mom, who raised four pretty successful kids, alone for the most part, while my dad was on the construction trail. My Gram, who mothered 12 kids and set to become an adventurer and traveller after her husband died in 1977. Any number of MacIsaac women […]

From the archives: High River before the floods

Way way back in 2010, I was still playing slopitch. I had, however, started to nurture my newer hobbies: photography and exploring.
