An Online Canadian Nature Journal
Photos and Poetry, Essays and Articles on Environment, Ecology, B.C. Mountains and Rain Forest Wilderness
Have you ever hiked to the top of a ten-thousand foot mountain? Stood eye-to-eye with a cougar, bear or deer? Sat down on a road to protect your watershed? Made a fire by rubbing sticks together?
Whether you have done these things or
not, my hope is to give you a glimpse at nature's vast beauty:
with nature photos from the Canadian wilderness, essays from the
B.C. interior rainforest, articles on environmental protection
and nonviolence, and poetry from the heart of a natural lifestyle.
