Ammonite Falls

Ammonite falls is one of those place that you can go to and each time you revisit it you are reminded how beautiful the area is. While in Nanaimo for the weekend I made another trip out to the falls and there was a lot of water coming over the falls do the the amount of rain and snow we have had in the past few weeks.

Although the falls are the main attraction the whole area is a fantastic place, when it gets a bit warmer I want to explore above and below the falls a bit more.

Englishman River Falls

Over the holidays while visiting family up in the Nanaimo area I made a trip out to Englishman River Falls Provincial Park which is know for its spectacular upper falls. I have not been to this park in sometime and was a nice change of scenery. Due to snowfall and heavy rain the river was pretty high, but not as high as I was expecting.

Looking both up and down the falls, you can see the footbridge on the right that you cross.

Looking up the upper falls.

Although the lower falls are not as spectacular as the upper falls they are still something you don’t want to miss.

Favourites of 2010

Well 2010 is over and a new year is here, time to look back at a few of my favourite photos from the past year. I didn’t get to travel as much as I had hoped this year but did manage to make a trip up though BC to Jasper which was a nice change. I am hoping to get to some new locations in 2011 and looking forward to some new experiences.
