One of my favourite ways to spend time


B.C. paddling

I've done most of my paddling in the Cariboo region, which includes the Quesnel, Cariboo, and Cottonwood rivers, as well as farther afield, the Chilko of White Mile notoriety. Other rivers in B.C. that I've run are the Clearwater, the Bridge, the Chilliwack, the Upper Fraser, the Thompson, the Nahatlatch, and others.

Paddling on Vancouver Island includes surfing at Long Beach or Jordan River, and the Cowichan, Chemainus, Nanaimo, Gordon, and Koksilah rivers. So far my only island pictures are of Englishman river falls.

the drop that the El Salto (means
big jump in spanish) was named for We made one short but very fun trip to Mexico with Agua Azul. My friend Kelly was on a later trip and ran all the same rivers I did, and he got some great pictures and actually did all the work of scanning them. See Mexico pictures
