An Editor from Explore Magazine – Canada’s source for outdoor adventure, hiking, camping, gear, travel and skills was recently referred to me: explore-mag.com One of my images from The Salish Sea Marine Trail Grand Opening in September may be used for an upcoming feature article, celebrating the trail.

Grizzly Bears in particular haven’t had many friends over the last couple of hundred years. Thankfully, on December 18th the BC NDP Government became one and ended this atrocious trophy hunting fiasco once and for all. I do not necessarily support any one given political party but I certainly do support this legislation and I applaud those elected to office for making a humane decision. This is certainly cause to celebrate this holiday season!
Thank you to all my followers! 2017 has been a great year filled with some exciting experiences. There’s more to come in 2018! My best to you over the holiday season.
Do you paddle on the west coast of British Columbia? Chances are you’ve visited a BC Marine Trails campsite or you may already be familiar with the work that the BC Marine Trails is doing? We have various opportunities within our organization for those passionate about paddling and who want to help us build the World’s largest marine trail network. It’s these volunteer efforts that help keep our trails and campsites open. Our stewardship committee and site condition reporting is an integral part of that process.

Help us prevent things like this from happening…

The recent images and video of the starving Polar Bear on Baffin Island are heartbreaking to say the least. It’s a reminder that we must start changing our ways, if it’s not already too late. As difficult as it was to observe, I applaud my friend Paul Nicklen and his team for their efforts in showcasing this for the World to see. Let’s start doing something about it!

Anyone with even a slight interest in adventure, geography and Canadian history will really enjoy this book. I just finished reading it. Adam Shoalts provides a very interesting and unique perspective on what it took to put Canada on the map. What stood out to me is just how recent all of this took place. As Canadians we have come a long way in a relatively short period of time. Check out the book trailer here:
