A while back I went on one of those bucket list trips/assignments that every time I think about I still get a little giddy. Some of the imagery is starting to pop up in tourism advertisements for the region. If you are still undecided on where you want to take your vacation this year, don’t hesitate to check out the Bella Coola area no matter what the season is they have something amazing to offer.
The pique has a travel feature this week with a couple of my shots from a trip I did up to Lake Lovely Water a while back. One of my favorite images from the trip is of Dave Straton who came along from Whistler Fishing Guides laying out a nice cast.If you are in the area I highly recommend calling up Ian King from Whistler Air for a flight in, the fishing is usually tough but with the cold summer we have had I bet the fishing is still going off up there.
The newest Mountain Life just hit the stands, with a story that I worked on with the always entertaining Feet Banks. We were lucky enough to make the trip up to Bella Coola last summer and visit Tweedsmuir Park Lodge. Everything up there is just bigger, the mountains, the bears, the fish, it is like the whole place is on steroids, it really is worth the life threatening drive to check it out. Here are a couple pics that didn’t make it into the mag, and also a shout out to the crew running Mountain Life they just won an award at the Western Magazine Awards.
