Recently, Kelly and I made our annual fall vacation and this year we chose Belize as our destination. Having traveled to a few countries in the area (Mexico, Dominican and Costa Rica) it was exciting to see something that was geographically close yet environmentally quite different. Belize for the most part is actually situated below sea level. This fact has led to a very unique landscape that is very flat, very wet and quite beautiful.
For the sake of our vacation we chose a small hotel/resort called the X’Tan Ha. This is a quaint, secluded and absolutely beautiful spot about 7 miles north of San Pedro on the Ambergris Caye. Accessible only by boat this secluded gem offered a week of rest and relaxation away from it all. While seclusion was definitely an aspect of desire town and amenities were also quite close and easily capitalized on.
These photos are mostly from in and around the X’Tan Ha but we did actually go outside and explore. You will just have to take my word for it though…

Bigfoot is a species in the genus of Gigantanthropus and is a distant relative of humans. While remaining a primarily solitary mammal, Bigfoot has been occasionally viewed from a distance in a less than convincing fashion. Previous to a recent indecent in Maple Ridge BC the existence of this animal was blurry and unconfirmed.
In a recent event, zoologists and Bigfoot folklorists around the world have had previous theories turned upside. Bigfoot has made its presence more than known by racing a fat-tire bicycle in a cyclocross bicycle race in Maple Ridge BC called the Pumpkin Cross. The full action of this race was caught on film and has forever changed how we will view this amazing creature which is seemingly so similar to ourselves. Not only does Bigfoot display human like demeanor but also has a drive for competition and a short fuse when it comes to winning.

This year (as with a few other years) following the Interbike trade show in Las Vegas Nevada a small group of Norco staffords took to the East instead of the North in search of higher ground. The destination was Moab Utah for a week of riding and unwinding after a busy event season over the summer. For 8 days this group of cyclists (me included) rode the best that Moab had to offer including the Whole Enchilada (twice), Captain Ahab, Hidden Valley, Portal, Poisen Spider, Pritchet Arch and more. An Amazing week of riding in a worldwide cycling destination.
This trip was more about riding that photos but I did still lug the ol’ camera with me on most of the rides. Here you can reap the rewards of my unfortunately heavy labours.
This post has been a little while coming. I apologize for my tardiness.
While attending the Las Vegas based Interbike trade show this year I made the effort to check out the Cross Vegas Cyclocross Race. This is always an amazing event as it is the first large profile cyclocross race of the season so many of the big names come out to experience the dryest course in the world. The Elite men’s field was a massive crowd and I focussed most of my camera efforts on Norco’s Aaron Schooler who had a fantastic race finishing as the second Canadian in the field shortly behind Geoff Kabush.
Here are some photos from the race.
Kayaking is not something that I have done a lot of lately but once upon a time I worked for a Kayak rental outfit on the sunshine coast and would occasional go practice an Eskimo roll. Those times are quite a few years in the past but this past weekend it was a ton of fun to do a small camping excursion via kayak to Thormanby Island adjacent to the Sunshine Coast. Here are a few photos from our brief Buccaneer Bay home.
