    I always enjoy your images and the stories behind them. Last summer I was in your area 4 times, 3 by myself, and one with a friend to do the Bowron Lakes trip. The fires were very dramatic but showed the resilience of the people. I hope to return this summer.
    Farwell Canyon should be on everyone’s “must do” list.
    Best regards,

      Thank you Lynn. I agree…a visit to Farwell is a ‘must’! Drop by again if you pass by. Chris

    Thank you, Chris… I always look forward to your newsletters! They are a welcome respite from the rush of and noise of the day-to-day. As my friends and I explored the completely transformed landscapes in the fire zone west of Quesnel late last fall and over the past winter, I thought about how you needed to be there to experiment and capture the awesome beauty left behind after the wildfires. I can’t wait to see what you create!

      I will no doubt be presenting in the Quesnel area; I hope to see you there Ron. Thanks. Chris

    Chris: You never fail to amaze me! Your BC Rail trip down memory lane (or shall I say ‘the track’) touches me deeply on my bookcase! The Royal Hudson is the great grandfather of BC and your eloquent book of the time remains powerfully ‘moving’!!! Thank you for your insight in photographing our past so vividly in motion to pass down to the ages. Yous from the Cariboo Trail along Green Lake…where I hear the whistle! Lorrie Fleming.

      Thank you Lori. I know how you feel. It passed by you along Green Lake for years; what a void. Chris

    Thanks Chris, beautiful pictures. Do you still take groups or anyone on the Bowron Lake circuit? I have wanted to do this since moving to BC in 1978, but never have.

      Sorry; that’s another era now! I’m close to 80; I don’t think you’d want me as your guide anymore!! Chris

    Holy Cow, memories , i was going through your news letter and saw the train picture , so I called Joyce over to see it and she says yah ahaw we have a copy of that picture and walks over to a wall and shows it to me .
    We had bought it on our way down from Alaska just before we moved back to Ontario in 2005.

    lol I have a fridge magnet of your photo. Have had it for years! Also a copy of Lorraine Harris’s ‘British Columbia’s Own Railroad’, any relation? Thank you, beautiful photos!

      Thanks Felix. We have one on our fridge too! There are hundreds of those magnets out there! How cool is that!!

  8. My sincerest Thank-You, Chris, for being instantly willing to receive and then to be sooo kind to my B&B guests the other day! They had been eager to meet the real Chris Harris!
    They very much enjoyed everything -particularly YOU- in the straw-house! Thanks for taking so much time – and for the breathtaking ARC presentation (which I myself have seen 3 times now!).
    I am sure that the books they took with them will become fine medicine for the souls of people in many countries.

      Thank you Henning. It was my pleasure. You and your guests are always welcome. Chris

  9. You are very lucky Chris; you obviously enjoy good health and you must keep fit for all your hikes and travels and you live where the scenery is quite spectacular. My own health, over the years,has not been brilliant and it’s that that has limited my travel so; it’s always a pleasure to see your images.
    I live in Surrey (England) on the London/Surrey borders and whilst London is interesting and Surrey very pretty, neither could ever claim to be spectacular; we have the Lake District and Western Scotland for that accolade!
    However, I’ve managed in my later years, to create a reasonable portfolio and I sell my images through three fairly local galleries and off my web site (julianheathphotography.co.uk) but would love to be able to get to your spectacular scenery or to where three of my nieces live in the States; Wyoming & Vermont (we have been to the latter!)
    So, keep up the good work; I’ll always be interested in seeing your Newsletters and images.

      Hi Julian, Thank you for your commenting and sharing your own work. I looked at your website, and although you may not have access to wilderness areas like I do, you do share the absolute beauty of your own part of the world. Congratulations! Chris

      1. Thank-you for your kind and thoughtful comments Chris.
