British Columbia has so many great camping locations and there is so little time to explore them.

Camping at Manning Park II
July 2015
First time camping with two kids! Manning Park is a favorite - close enough to be a quick return, but far enough away to be very different from the city.
Kids Swimming In The Lake
Waking Up In ATent
First time camping with the Baby! Cultus Lake is close enough to the city that you can get back in time, but far enough away that they have really good mini golf! (September 2010)

Cultus Lake Camping

Tent With Tarp Over Entrance
The Okanagan at the end of summer has so many attractions. The farmers markets are full of food, the days are warm and there is still lots of wine to be had (2009)

Okanagan Camping II

Tent Setup On Beach
Cape Scott is one of those legendary hikes on Vancouver Island. With beautiful sandy beaches and muddy trails, we got to experience true West Coast Camping. (2009)

Cape Scott

Rounded Croker Island
Otherwise known as my stag, a valiant band of brothers went kayaking up Indian arm never to be seen again. Well, perhaps they were less than 24 hours later exactly where they started. (2008)

Granite Falls, North End of Indian Arm

All Of Us At Lang
The Okanagan is one of my favorite places and this year we got to go camping there. Lots of fun with wine tasting and local touring. (2007)

Camping at Okanagan North

Canoing Around Smokey Point
We revive the fall camping experience - with showers and everything. A local forest fire adds a bit of magic to the photography. (2006)

Camping in Manning Park

Field Of Flowers
Panorama ridge is a very long day hike but we made a great long weekend camping trip. The alpine flowers were out in force. (2006)

Garibaldi Lake, Panorama Ridge

Helen On Bridge With Glaciers
Helen's first "Backpack" camping trip and my first in a number of years, we went out to one of the "Big 5" of the Coast Mountains for the August long weekend. (2006)

Joffre Lakes

Tent With Night Sky
Helen had a few days off mid week and had never been camping so we visited two hot springs - St. Agnes Wells as well as Sloquet Hot Springs. We stopped in to the Skookumchuck Church of the Holy Cross. (2006)

Two Hot Springs

Glassy Lake
Levette lake is in the Squamish area and looked like a fun weekend trip. There are great views of the Tantulus Range and this lovely lake. (2002)

Levette Lake

Daisies with Picnic Table
We usually try to do something for the May Day long weekend (see Tofino or Salt Spring Island) and this year we wanted to go camping.  The Sunshine coast is new to us, so we thought we would give it a try!  The hike along Campbell Creek was well worth the time! (2002)
 

Porpoise Bay, Sechelt

Hiking Down Hill
Sean first discovered the Confluence project and told us about the project.   The project is to get people to visit every integer confluence of longitude and latitude around the world and post pictures on their web page.  We chose 50°N, 121°W because it's close to Vancouver and it didn't look impossible to get to.  We rented two mini vans and Friday afternoon we hit the road!  (2001)
 

Merritt

The Dock
Nine of us on a crazy four day bike camping trip - none of us were prepared for the adventure, the excitement, and what happened when Sean took his shirt off. (1999)

Pender Island

David Descending

  A short trip, Horne lake was a small crew but a lot of fun.  Other trips have had lots of hiking but this trip was dominated by caving and canoeing.  The trip was done in September of 1998.

Horne Lake

I had just bought my camera, basically so I could record trips like this.  This was a fairly long trip - four days, and I loved shooting it.  I had my small tripod (you'll see lots of pictures of it), and I shot six rolls of film.  The trip was done in August of 1997.

Manning Park

The first camping trip where I brought a camera - a disposable 35mm camera from Kodak.  The pictures are hazy and dark but it was a great camping trip.  The trip was done in August of 1996.

Strathcona Park

Runabout on the Beach
The trip that inspired them all! Our first trip in the summer after grade 12 (1992), Heather's Dad took us out to Portland Island and let us fend for ourselves. (Eric Jones brought a camera - these are his photos)

Princess Margaret Provincial Park

The following year we went to Gold Stream, but there are no known photos.
