Words & photos by K.C. Deane
Its Saturday night, about 8 o’clock, my friend and photographer Dan Brown is in Tahoe and we are just getting back from a long day of sledding and shooting photos. I’m hanging my gear out to dry, getting ready for the next day which should prove to be equally long, and hopefully as satisfying. Dan is unloading the days work onto his computer as everyone gathers around for show and tell. In my mind I’m thinking, “two more days and then a break for a day or two, hmmmm, I wonder why Grant hasn’t called about the BC trip he asked me about…tomorrows going to be a long day, up at 5am, gas the sleds, drive, get there at 7? earlier? Hmmmm well I guess 5 am will work.” I break my day dreaming to my phone ringing, Gunderson is calling. Grant asks me if I want to get some free heli time in and do a 4 day photo contest in interior BC. !!!!!!!!! The trip was a 4 day photo contest put on by Kootenay Mountain Culture, and was for the Cold Smoke Mountain Festival in Nelson, BC.
