Bobskoot was here

Bobskoot, who lives in Vancouver, has an interest in photography and introduces himself with the following words:
an avid motorcycle rider for many years during the mid 60's to early 80's. after an absence of nearly 20 years, recently re-entered the 2 wheeled world of scootering. i like to enjoy the scenery, the smell of flowers and taking the road less travelled; the back roads of British Columbia, and the Pacific Northwest with a camera by my side to capture memories of a lifetime. The adventure is the journey, may you never reach your destination.
Sometime last December he was at Whonnock Lake on a cold and windy day and took some great pictures. Click here to have a look.
