Behold the Photographs of John Thomson, the First Western Photographer to Travel Widely Through China (1870s)

The still-new medium of photography had yet to make images of everywhere available to viewers everywhere else, which meant an opportunity for traveling practitioners like John Thomson. “The son of a tobacco spinner and shopkeeper,” says, ” he was apprenticed to an Edinburgh optical and scientific instrument manufacturer where he learned the basics of photography.” In 1862 Thomson sa...

Nootka Trail Hike: A Complete Guide & Trip Report

The Nootka Trail now ranks as my favourite coastal trail in BC. It stretches for 37 kilometres along the west coast of Nootka Island off the coast of Vancouver Island. What it offers is a true wilderness experience with a backdrop of sublime west coast scenery. Most of the hike is beside the ocean on a mix of hardpacked sand beach, slippery boulders, and rocky shelves. The forest hiking ranges from spectacular with massive giant trees to horrible sections filled with mud and slippery logs. What ...
