I was chatting on the phone this morning with my friend and workshop teaching partner Dennis Ducklow, as our Photographic Workshop is fast approaching. As we discussed plans, we both realized how pumped we were to be soon heading out across the Chilcotin Plateau to Bella Coola to start our 5th workshop at the Tallheo Cannery. We have so many new ideas to share!
During our conversation, I suggested he come and visit a day early and I would take him out to the grasslands. He said he had never been there as yet. I was shocked, but that makes it all the better! I can’t wait to show someone from the Lower Mainland what BC is REALLY all about! I think I’ll take him toward the Big Bar Ferry, west of Clinton.
Here are a few images of the country we will explore.

Grassland vistas abound
Across a ranchers field lie beautifully coloured cliffs within Devil’s canyon
Green terraces that were once ancient lake bottoms form canyon walls above the Fraser River
Hold on Dennis, you are about to be blown away! The same holds true for all visitors to the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia. We did not burn up and disappear in the wildfires last summer; we will be here welcoming all visitors with our Cariboo Chilcotin hospitality. Oh, and while you are here, drop in and visit the Chris Harris Gallery! Hope to see you!
