Sproat Lake Petroglyphs

The Vancouver Island region is a rich source of First Nations culture and history, including many fascinating petroglyphs.  Below are some of the petroglyphs from Sproat Lake near Port Alberni, BC.

Vancouver Island Revisited

I was going through the slide film scan archive and came across a few images from my first trip to Vancouver Island, when I visited Tofino, Victoria, and Port Renfrew in September, 2000.  

Looking back, it's hard to believe I had never ventured west of West Vancouver in the twenty-some years I lived in BC; in fact I had been to Europe, Asia, and made at least half a dozen trips to Nova Scotia before I ever made it over to Vancouver Island.  Now, I'm trying to make up for lost time...

Red Rock Coulee, Alberta

Living on Gabriola is great, and there are a lot of new landscapes for a photographer to explore here on the west coast, but one thing I do miss from living in Alberta was the ability to get up and go somewhere without having to catch a ferry...

Here's a photo from the archives, circa 2005, taken at the Red Rock Coulee Natural Area in southern Alberta.  We had camped there overnight, so we could take advantage of the great light at sunset and again the following morning.  Thinking about this makes me wish we still had our VW Westfalia camper...
