Glacial Run

W B Skinner says:

The Kuskanax River runs clear and cold from the glacial mountains above Nakusp, in south central British Columbia.

I had the great fortune to hike this fantastic river a few times this summer (2007) while visiting the area… following along its rocky banks up into the mountains until at last they became too steep to navigate. So many different flowers and plants grew here … there were several unique little ecosystems completely governed by how much light exposure they received.

Some other photos I took on these outings are : Clearwater Run , Flowers in the River Vale, and Mountain River Morning.

Mountain Biking Heaven

Ann and I love mountain biking on unpaved country roads. Ten years ago we drove to north Georgia every weekend for 4 – 5 hours of biking. It provided adventure we could enjoy together (we had several close encounters with bears) and kept us fit. Due to a combination of busyness in our lives and unfettered development in north Georgia, we don’t do it anymore.

We want to live in a place where sights like this are only a short ride away.

waterfall

WB Skinner says:

From the old road I could hear the water cascading in the distance. I made my way through thick under-brush toward the sound… camera and pod in one hand and shielding my face with the other. I smiled when I saw the falls … and gasped when I saw the last tidbit of summer surrender to the colder season.
