2017 has a been a year of change; I spent 6 months working as an outdoor educator and guide in Strathcona Park, started rock climbing seriously, had some sweet new adventures, and moved to Nelson BC. After 8 years of putting music first, I wanted to take a step back to self reflect and try new things.
In the next few posts, I would like to present a retrospective of my year through pictures.
Part 1 - Winter Mountains
I started the year with a 4 day solo snowshoe trip in the Forbidden Plateau (Strathcona Provincial Park). Although not a very long trip, it was the most intense feeling of solitude I had ever experienced. No footprints, no trail, no noise, and very dense fog.
After getting a glimpse of Mt Albert Edward for just of a few minutes, completely encased in snow, I became obsessed with the idea of climbing it. I returned a few weeks later with my friend Dan for a fantastic blue bird day ascent.
