This book is a showcase of my corner of the Pacific Northwest: the big city in which I live, the province and states in which I play, and the places that I love to travel to: ocean waters, big lakes, massive waves, lush forests, endless snowfields, craggy mountains, surprising deserts.
This is where I live and play. Enjoy this beautiful place with me.
