For anyone that has seen my winter images on the web it’s no secret that the majority of them were taken locally. Even though I am not particularly fond of Vancouver, or any other huge metropolitan area come to think of it, living in a city that is so close to an abundance of mountains does have its advantages. The biggest advantage for me is that on any given day I can jump in my car and be in an alpine environment within forty five minutes from my house. Within an hour of hiking, skiing or snow shoeing I can feel as if I am isolated from urban sprawl. Not bad for a city dweller.
One area that I spend a lot of time at in the winter is Mt. Seymour provincial park. Mt. Seymour is a beautiful park that offers some great short back country travel and gorgeous wilderness scenery that extends northward for hundreds of kilometers. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve hiked to the summit, often I’ll just go without a camera to get some quick fresh air and an alpine fix.
Last year I put together a short video about Mt. Seymour that I would like to share with anyone that is interested. Hopefully as time goes on I will be posting more video logs to share some of my travels.
