Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

Belcarra to Sasamat Lake - Part II - Sasamat Lake - 10 July 2010

Continuing on along the Springboard Trail, it hooks up with the Woodhaven Trail which itself in turn hooks up with the Sasamat Lake Loop Trail. Bear warning are on all the markers along the way. Luckily I saw no bears which were either sleeping through the heat of the day or munching on ripe berries to be found throughout the region. What follows is a series of photos taken on the remainder of the first two mentioned trails.
Crossing Bedwell Bay Road in Belcarra the trail soon hook up with the Woodhaven Trail.
I love water scenes in the landscape as above and the bright blue sky when it can be seen as below.
The two images above show water flowing under a small bridge. Then below are many bugs congregating along the water's edge in another stream. Looks like plenty of food for the fish in the water below!
Then there's the Sasamat Lake Loop Trail. I managed to only take part of it: the southwestern part of the trail. So whether is people sunning or swimming at White Pine Beach as above, or swimming across the lake or even boating, Sasamat Lake is a magnet of activity during the summer months as it was that day in July! Feel free to comment. Meantime, enjoy the photos!!! - V
