Long time, no blog.  No excuses, only good reasons.  Life intervened, delivered up curious adventures and mishaps, misplaced wallets, road trip shenanigans, a dangerously full moon, happy campers, tired dogs, one tasty chicken burger and a bee sting.

Much of this took place on route in the Cariboo and on the Chilcotin Plateau… now, if you count yourself among those who’ve reconnoitred this particular stretch of Canada, then you’ll be conjuring images of a lonely long road under a hot sun with a heckuva hill at the end and varmits a-plenty to watch you pass.  For those of you who’ve never had the highway 20 experience, this will mean absolutely nothing to you.  That’s okay, we’ve got photos.

Well, mostly pix of the little Shangri La at the end of the highway – the Bella Coola Valley, and this year’s Bella Coola Music Festival was awash in good vibes and sunshine.  From the folk-soulsy musings of Scott Cook to the groovy shimmy of Locarno, it was all good, good, good.  And there were bubbles.

And then there’s this über-talented photographer Arianne Loranger-Saindon, whose summer job consists of going from festival to festival in Northern British Columbia, collecting photos and stories for an upcoming book.  What an awful job, I know.  But all for the good cause of promoting the region, it’s people and spirit.

Check out her website and listen in to CBC Radio’s Daybreak North next Wednesday (Aug 31) at 8 o’clock for an interview.  And hey… like the facebook page to keep looped in and support small towns and indie music, varmits and all.
