Spotted one of the locals during a hike at Cathedral Provincial Park.

Hiker and Goat Meet near Giant Cleft

This is one of our favourite photos from the past few years. We came across an intrepid goat on the rocks at Giant Cleft, while hiking in Cathedral Provincial Park and Protected Area. The goat didn’t seem to mind having company. This photo was short-listed in the 2017 Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival Photo Competition. It will appear on the big screen throughout the 20th Anniversary VIMFF (Feb. 10-18), along with other short-listed and winning photographs.

2011 VIMFF Mountain Landscape Category - Second Prize

Nepal Winter Village – Mountain Landscape Category

Nepal Winter Village won second prize at the 14th Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival Mountain Photography Competition. This photo was shot on a small Sony digital camera. The mountains look like a Hollywood backdrop. This tiny village is uninhabited most of the year. It is located just north of the Annapurna Circuit at an altitude of about 3720 m. We stopped here during a three week trek with Mick Bromley of Wilderness Trekking. During our adventure, we produced a four-part TV news series called Islanders in Nepal.

HBC Heritage Trail Documentary

HBCElevation

2016

2016

We’re producing a short documentary about the Hudson’s Bay Heritage Trail. To fund this independent project, we’ve launched a GoFundMe Campaign. Check out the story in the Penticton Herald. By sharing this story, we hope to encourage others to help protect and preserve this historic trail. The film will be submitted to a number of film festivals and then shared via social media.

The HBC Trail was completed in 1849. Originally a First Nations route for hunting and trade, the HBC Trail played a key role in British Columbia’s early development. Since 2009, significant progress has been made in re-opening this historic fur trail over the Cascades. Hikers and horseback riders can now enjoy a continuous wilderness trail that spans 74-kms, between Hope and Tulameen.

Harley Hatfield and Victor Wilson travelled the HBC Heritage Trail in 1971. Both men were prominent Naramata residents and were well known throughout the Okanagan Valley. In the Okanagan Historical Society’s Report for 1972, Harley wrote about the trail, and Victor included his journal. Victor Wilson was filmmaker Sandy Wilson’s father. He owned Paradise Ranch at the end of Naramata Rd.
