Landscapes – 2014 – Yukon to Oregon

Hudson Bay Mountain

I was lucky enough to get up to some pretty great adventures in 2014. I’ve been going through last year’s photos and decided to put together a small collection of landscape shots from those adventures.

In early May I was driving from Calgary to Smithers and took this shot just off the highway.

Later on, in July, I did some traveling around the BC/Yukon border. Here is a sunrise outside of my tent on Palmer Lake.

Here is an aerial shot of Atlin Lake, BC. I got to camp with an old friend on a mountainside for 3 days, with nary another soul about. I hadn’t experienced that kind of distraction-free solitude in quite some time. It was very nice.

We camped next to Tarfu Lake (or one of the small lakes along side it). Fog began to form on the lake as the sun went down.

Later in the month I made my way down to Portland and then Smith Rock, OR.

In August, some good friends and I trekked along the Juan de Fuca trail on Southern Vancouver Island.

I made my way back up North again to Smithers, BC, for the end of August. Here is a shot from beside the river near my friend Markus’ place.

My partner Anna & I went on a few amazing hikes this trip. Here is a shot from midway along a 24km circuit in the Babine Mountain Range, just as a thunder storm rolled in.
