My final morning in Tonquin Valley recently was broken up when these two bull caribou wandered in behind me as I was photographing sunrise. A very special moment alone in the backcountry being absolutely decimated by mosquitoes but at the same time in complete awe. These animals are rare and classed as a species at risk in our mountain National Parks, even more so the white one! They got very close to me, undisturbed by my presence.
... like a painting in the sky ... always moving and always changing 🌟
Lots of people ask me when the “season” for Aurora is. The answer is: there is no season. It can happen at anytime, the hours of darkness available is what makes certain times of the year better than others. In most parts of Canada, we have enough darkness all year long giving us the ability to see the Northern Lights dance at any clear night 😃
I have been home for about a month now and I feel like the road is calling my name.
I am starting to plan a few trips for September / October / November .. any suggestions? Mountains are a must. As always 🏔
Sometimes I get caught up in trying to climb up yet another summit in the hopes of shortening an ever expanding list of mountains I'd love to experience in my lifetime. This weekend was a little different - there were no objectives other than to take in the views around the slice of paradise that is @mistayalodge and to enjoy some of the best food I've ever had (I'm not even exaggerating). Val's cooking quickly worked its magic and made every meal with what once were strangers, feel like a family get together - pointed jabs and hearty laughter included 🤗#mistayalodge July 12, 2019 📷@brandonmacmullin
