Summer
Thanks for liking my photos. Taking pictures is just my hobby and I only have half-a-year experience in SLR camera taking. (I am not a professional photographer even though taking a photo of northern lights is kind of involved in my job.) But If someone can be happy with my pictures, I too am... Read More
Exploring Kaslo
Exploring Kaslo
Summer
 Dozens of locals have suggested a trip to Kaslo since I moved to Nelson six weeks ago, and yet each time they’ve asked about my visit, I’ve had to shake my head and utter the same response: “I haven’t been just yet”. So last week it was time to turn things around and venture up the lake. Yet... Read More

Knowledge Network History Competition
Arts, Culture & Heritage
I hiked up Pulpit Rock a few weeks ago to get some perspective on how to approach the Knowledge Network’s History Shorts Competition. As I looked around from that vantage point, the idea for my pitch emerged. The isolated and mountainous geography of our region shapes our communities and us as... Read More

Cody Caves
Summer
Last weekend, I was granted the opportunity to explore the newly re-opened Cody Caves for the first time.  I’ve been in caves before, but after this experience, I would say this was my first time truly ‘caving’. The trip began with a 20-minute drive up the mountain to the parking lot where we... Read More

Dissimilar is one word that springs to mind when comparing Australia to Canada. Sure, both countries share among the lowest population densities across the globe. But while Aussies can wear a pair of flip-flops year round, most Canadians have a collection of skis and down jackets always close at... Read More

Well, it's almost time. The tell-tale waft of lilacs is in the air, announcing that Kaslo is about to host our most infamous, enduring and vibrant party.

NBC Brewery Tour
Food and Beverage
 Nelson Brewing Company (NBC) has quite the view, whether you are on the roof looking out over Nelson, BC or in the brewery admiring their long line of organic beers and stacks and stacks of beer getting processed, bottled, capped and ready to be shipped out. Since NBC’s inception in 1991,... Read More
Kaslo Soccer
Kaslo Soccer
Spring
Twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays behind the school, a motley little crew of Kaslovians assembles for a lighthearted, high-spirited, very friendly soccer game around 5:30pm. Last friday I worked up the courage to attend, in spite of my very mediocre soccer skills. I've always liked soccer, more... Read More

Balfour Golf
Spring
Spring transformed into summer this past week in the Nelson Kootenay Lake area. The sun beat down on us hitting 28 degrees or more in places, and if you were on the Balfour Golf Course you would have felt the heat from the sun and also the cool breeze off the snowcapped mountains. Oh the pleasure... Read More
