Okay, confession time: I am coming clean. I sneaked off up to Terrace, BC to visit a dear friend of mine, and also to check out the town that I grew up in. Oh the changes, and how things stayed the same, altogether overwhelming and home-sick at the same time. I needed the break, but probably worked harder while up there than enjoying the clean air and open spaces. But what a trip!
I will post more about Terrace, and some of the people I met in the coming days. I snapped over 500 photos, and shot some video too. I documented it well. From flowers to water falls, to rivers and clouds, it was a blast, as a photographer, this was dream land. The air is so clean, and so much open space, their version of traffic on the roads is a five minute wait while the road crews stop you while they are paving it. It is very laid back, and no one is in a hurry. The term “rat-race” takes on a totally different meaning here. LOL
For now I will leave you with this one photo (above). Taken just below the Old Bridge along the Skeena River in Terrace, BC. The photo should give you some idea of who I met while up there. 😉 So nice to be amongst friends; so nice to be there, parting was bitter sweet.
The above image is the Coastal Mountains of British Columbia, at 24,000 feet, on my return trip back to Vancouver from Terrace. A great view from up there. The mountains look so small and fragile, not to mention cold, with all that snow and ice on them.
