We have been guiding with Neil for more than a decade.
Jan Studios is our professional photography business that keeps us busy between expeditions. Capturing gorgeous images in a pristine wilderness setting has to be one of the greatest things. Sharing this with out river guests is one of the many highlights of our expeditions.
Jamie completed his first Ironman triathlon at Mont Tremblant in Quebec this past August. After almost of year of doing up to 10 workouts per week, the culminating result was an 11 hour finish time and a life-changing experience. Now it is time to let the body heal…it’s tough not being 25 anymore. Next on the horizon is training for next summer’s World Triathlon Finals in Edmonton.
While Jamie was out playing on his bike, Nadine was more than busy working at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre in Strathcona County. In August, she and Jamie drove out east with their 17 year-old husky, Gryphon, for the Ironman and had a fantastic time enjoying warm water and sunny weather in the Gatineau Hills north of Ottawa.
Jamie Burdon – after one of the most amazing summers sharing the Mountain River with an amazing group of people, visiting past guests in Ontario, and shooting a wedding in Barbados, I have have taken the plunge and entered the Mont Tremblant Ironman next August. Why, you ask? Curiosity.
Nadine Burdon – We had an amazing summer! Since then, I have been splitting my time between outdoor education work at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre and a backlog of images from our trips and wedding photography! Looking forward to the ski season.
