Feather Trail View

Feather Trail View

View from three quarters of the way up the Feather Trail on Grouse Mountain. Point Grey, Burrard Inlet, and Stanley Park form a nice backdrop to Capilano Lake (at the head of Capilano River Regional Park), with Hollyburn Ridge and Cypress Provincial Park up to the right on the other side of the lake.

Old Tree on Volunteer Park Beach

Old Tree on Volunteer Park Beach

Old tree stump on Volunteer Park Beach – smooth and black from erosion and time – with the City of Vancouver in the background. Unlike other driftwood around, it doesn’t move with the rise and fall of the tides.

Greater Victoria Panorama

Greater Victoria Panorama

The view from Mount Tolmie Park looking southwest (towards the city of Victoria), west (across Saanich towards the Sooke Hills), and northwest (towards Mount Douglas Park and the Gulf Islands). Together, they form a full 180° panorama of southern Vancouver Island.

The Lodge

The Lodge

I stood shirtless in my own sweat and started to shiver.

I watched flecks of ash drift through a forest smudged by the curling heat waves of the fire at my feet before my lightheadedness and I sat down. My skin had only just stopped steaming and body was confused. I could hear the clatter of the crows bothering the osprey in the east, but the world sounded muffled, filtered through a helmet of nausea that mocked whatever relief the cool air and fifty cent water bottle contained.
