Big Bar Lake

My Associate Interior Designer and CAD Technician extrodinaire, Carole Root, has just come back from a fishing weekend at a cabin set on Big Bar Lake.  Big Bar Lake is situated in the High Country Region (or as it is commonly referred to as "The Cariboo") of British Columbia and is located north of Clinton and west of 70 Mile House.  It is some of the most beautiful countryside I have set my eyes on. The weather was perfect autumn days when the colors are magnificent, crisp and clear.  I can almost smell the lake and the freshness of the air when I look at these pictures.  How wonderful to be out in nature, truly away from it all.  Below are some of the pictures Carole took with her new camera, a  Canon Rebel XSI.  I hope these pictures are as much a feast for your eyes as they are for mine.  Thanks Carole.  Enjoy..........

Post Script Oct 30 2008   Gray bird photo is actually a Gray Jay otherwise known as a Whiskey Jack. What's in a name? Well our First Nations people knew this creature as "wiss-ka-tjon" or "wis-ka-chon". In the old-time lumbering days the Jay would visit the lumberjacks in the northern forests of Canada. In turn, the lumberjacks shared their grub with it and came to call it "Whiskey-Jack". Now the bird's modern "common" name is "Gray Jay" or "Canada Jay"(and its scientific name is Perisoreus Canadensis).

  3. Brent and I stayed at the Big Bar Guest Ranch many years ago - still one of our favourite memories is walking along a trail and coming across the path of a beautiful silver wolf. Frightening but beautiful. It really is a world apart from our daily city living.

  4. Patricia, if you look at the Jack Pine photo without focusing too much, it appears like wall paper or fabric- with the spacing, ground color and layout designed just perfectly.

  11. As a passionate photographer myself I always enjoy other's images. The fish particularly caught (!) my eyes for the composition with the diagonal lines and the story the picture is telling us. I am always fascinated by "stories".
