1890 Telegraph Cabin Quick British Columbia (Photos)


Above Photo: 1890 Telegraph Cabin Quick British Columbia information sign.

Here is building I have driven by for years, but never stopped to check it out, until now. 

The 1890 Telegraph Cabin in Quick, B.C. is located yards off Highway 16 to the west. You can park your vehicle to the side of the gravel road and walk into the area where the cabin sits. 

The area was fenced off, but there is an opening so folks can get up close to take pictures, and place their hands onto some of British Columbia’s history. 

I have a number of photos posted on my Travel Blog, and you can find them here at this link.

Timber Kings Huge Log Home Filmed On Hudson Bay Mountain Estates Smithers B. C. (Photos)


Above Photo: This is the log home that is being built by the folks on the 
hit TV show ,the Timber Kings.

My wife, dog and I went for a drive on Sunday, September 27, 2015 to Smithers, British Columbia so I could film some of the beautiful scenery around the area, and there is plenty of amazing places to visit.

One of the areas we explored was at the top of the Hudson Bay Mountain Ski hill. It was raining with a low cloud ceiling, so I was not able to take a lot of photos at the top, but we did find some cabins, and other buildings to film.

I have posted a bunch of pictures from the Hudson Bay Mountain in
 Smithers B. C. Please visit the following link.

Seymour Lake is a small lake located approximately 3.7 kilometers from the town of Smithers, B.C. 

I have not personally fished the
lake, but I hear the fishing can be good. So check it out, take a rod along with you and good luck.

Irrigation Lake/Scenery And Old Building Filmed Around Houston British Columbia (Photos/Video)


Above Photo: The Bulkley River in Houston, British Columbia. Actually I took a picture from this very same spot in Summer. Here is a link to this. I also will post a winter photo from the same location as well.

My wife and I decided to get out of the home for a while and I thought I would take some new photos of the Fall colours that are present in our small town of Houston, British Columbia.

So we drove around Houston, and I snapped some photos of what we saw. 

We also headed out a short distance from Houston to a small lake, where in summer people flock to Irrigation Lake to go swimming, sunbathing, fishing, hiking and they take along a picnic basket for their lunch. You can also cook some hot-dogs and hamburgers over fire pits. There is a sandy beach for the little ones to make sandcastles, or just to dig a big hole to get lost in. There are toilets/outhouses on site, and change rooms.

Snowmobile Building Mural Houston British Columbia (Photo)


I have been running around town today and just noticed that there were three painted Murals on buildings that I had not seen before. Houston, B.C. is not a big town, and I must have driven by these hundreds of times and for some reason I never noticed them.
