Originally from Montreal, I’ve been living in the Pacific Northwest, exploring its forests, climbing its mountains, and enjoying all that outdoor life  can offer here since the 1980s.

These pages are where I’ll be sharing my exploits, past and present, plus some itinerant thoughts on other things. Feel free to grab a cold beverage or two, and stick around for a while if you like what you see. Thanks for dropping by, I hope you enjoy the read!

Be sure to check out my recent photos on Instagram for more content. They are often previews for future stories!

  2. Hi – do you know how one could find some historical information about the previous existence of garryanna oak at East Point, Saturna Island?

    1. Hi Janice,
      I’m not sure about the history of trees on Saturna, since I’ve never been. If they are big trees they may be recorded, so you could check by Googling BC Big Tree Registry. There are lists there for the largest trees for all BC native specimens. Someday I’d like to visit Saturna, when its safe to travel again of course


  3. Hi Mike,

    I just want to say thank you for your wonderful blog. I really mean that. It’s been a great source of joy, wonder, and information; and a resource that helped me fall in love with old growth.

    Wishing you the very best,

    1. Thank you, James, I am glad to hear that you have been enjoying the site. It’s my belief that the more people experience and appreciate the forest, the more old growth will be valued for preservation, not just harvest


  4. A most interesting article. There is tons of history in those hills and thanks for sharing those amazing finds.
    Last year I discovered an old embalming fluid bottle on Mt Fromme, a testament to the dangerous life those men led.
