This week at work, we responded to a pedestrian struck involving a child. One of the calls I’ve been dreading since I started my career. Sometimes even the safest drivers can still get into accidents. Even with all the snow gone, we’re entering a rainy week ahead. Here’s a friendly reminder to always look out for each other out there. Remember to safely slow down and pull over for emergency crews, and let’s all continue to stay safe both as drivers and as pedestrians.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing” 🤍
Moving to BC has been my dream
ever since my first visit out here
What’s one thing that you’ve been wanting do forever? 📸 @joshmcca
It feels as the summer was a whole lifetime ago.
I’m now at the point where I am trying to sort out how my upcoming summer is going to look. And truth be told, I’m a little stressed. You may know that I work primarily as a climatologist (different than a meteorologist). However, our current research is being bought by a university and would require me to move to Calgary - which, unfortunately, is not where I want to be. This means there is a good chance that I won’t be doing my planned research this summer. I actually have no idea what I will be doing or where I will be. I am someone who more or less always has a plan- and it feels weird being without direction. So at this point I’m open to suggestions of what I should do or where I should go!

I remember it being a quiet evening in the hoodoos above the Tranquille Farms. Christmas Day isn’t typically a date many go for a solo hike through the snow, but how could I resist such a clear sky?
I can’t say why I wasn’t a fan of this shot back in 2017. It certainly is one of my favourite winter captures presently.
Walking back to our overflow parking at Liard Hot Springs from the river. Too hot to go to springs, so we headed to the river.
Minutes after this photo, my dogs spotted something in the trees to my left. There’s a lot of bison and bears around this area so I told them to, “leave it,” and we carried on. As we passed, I realized it was a porcupine, which I exclaimed out loud. Coral wanted a picture so I doubled back, which the dogs took as permission to chase!
Long story short, I somehow ended up on my stomach, being dragged into the trees by my dogs. Coral is holding onto my leg, her dog is wondering what’s going on, and her brother is laughing is ass off. -
Something out of a horror movie, something out to a comedy. I. Got some good injuries but the porky made it up a tree safe and no one had a face full of quills. - #adventure#travelbc#liardhotsprings#liardhotspringsprovincialpark#britishcolumbia#dogsonadventures#traveldogs#dogsofinstagram#siberianhusky#alaskamalamute#campingwithdogs#dogsareinsane
Waiting for the stars. An hour later, the same day as the last post. The clouds were so fine it looked like I could blow them away from where I stood. It's hard to see as a small digital image, but the tree silhouettes are very textured, and thick with paint. I wanted to make the feeling of the trees contrast the feel of the sky.
Just out here trying to catch up on sleep as I never seem to get enough 🙈 Anyone else feel like their jetlag is worse traveling back east than west? Or is it just me 😆😂 excited for more hiking adventures this year.
