Mrs Dragonspeed and I went on a 4 day hiking trip with our Venturer Scouts to Cape Scott Provincial Park. For those that don’t know where it is, here is a map to give you an idea: Cape Scott Hiking Map

Here are a few photos from the beautiful wilderness of Northern Vancouver Island:

Foggy Vancouver Mornings

25 10 2013

The past two weeks have had Vancouver, BC sitting in a temperature inversion.  Down in the city, the temperatures have been 6C in the morning while up higher in the mountains it was 13C.  Combined with moist air from the Pacific, that means low lying fog and some great photo ops!

My wife and I went up on Saturday and found that the fog ceiling was a bit too high:

Not to be deterred by that, it was time to get a bit creative.  Mount Baker silhouetted against the sunrise:

The sunrise, itself made for a nice opportunity too:

On Wednesday, I dragged myself out of bed solo and headed up… got to the cypress viewpoint by 06:15…urgh, that’s early.  What a reward though!!!

The pre-dawn city in the Fog:

Wednesday was just a day of "Wow" after "Wow" as the light changed and kept presenting interesting opportunities.  Wednesday’s set can be seen in entirety here:
