Helmcken Falls plunging into a massive snow cone during a night of stargazing in early March.
After a five hour drive I arrived at the end of the plowed road shortly after 2am, and boy it sure was dark under these Bortle Class 1 skies! Right away I noticed what appeared to be clouds in the sky directly above the waterfall, but after shooting a test photo I realized it was actually a mist plume rising up hundreds of feet into the air from the falls. The waterfall doesn't look all that big in this image under the Galactic Core, but it's over twice the height of Niagara Falls! The snow cone at the bottom is formed each winter by freezing mist. I left the camera sitting on the tripod for a couple hours while I waited for the Milky Way to move into position... that turned out to be a bad idea as the temperature dropped to -23°C that night. That was cold enough to cause the camera to malfunction, and the dreaded "Camera Error" message popped up on the LCD screen just as I began shooting the Milky Way. I ran back to the car with the camera, and after letting it warm up a bit it eventually started working again. That wasted a good 15-20 minutes though, and by then it was just minutes before Astronomical Dawn so I really had hurry in order to get some exposures for stacking before the sky began to brighten!
Many people listen to recordings of flowing water to relax. I suggest you put on the rubber boots and get out to the forest to get the full sensory experience. But hurry, these streams carrying snowmelt will soon be losing their source of water for another year.

He is off the charts talented!
Had some visitors stop by for #EarthDay ! Great reminder as to why it’s important that we each do our part. After this we went and collected garbage from a local beach as part of @sunshinecoastbc’s earth day clean up. Props to them for the great initiative! I’ll be continuing to collect trash that I come across during my adventures, I hope some of you will be inspired to do the same 🤙🌎🌲 #SunshineCoastCleanUp •

Not often I get to see rays these prominent out in the woods.
Stellar way to start the morning✨
We were fortunate to spend yet another weekend exploring with @colourful_cassandra
She is hands down the most badass mountain chick I know and both Koda and I are stoked to get more summits under our belt and explore with her. I gotta say, this little app has allowed me to meet some amazing people, create some sweet relationships and has opened up a ton of opportunities i didnt think would happen.
Who is someone you look up to?
We are so humbled and grateful to be able to recognize extraordinary Canadians from astronauts to entrepreneurs. We hope that shining the light on people who are not afraid to dream big will inspire many more to reach for the stars! #CanadaThrives

Haven’t had a chance to post much from trip to Toronto Canada 🇨🇦 since I got back. Here are some photos from the reknowned Casa Loma where well known films such as Chicago and X-Men were filmed. Good times. Good memories. 🤙🏽🙌🏽🦉
