To simply refer to Vancouver Island as ""spectacular"" is to utter an understatement Û at best. Perhaps nowhere on the planet do the effects of topography, climate, and culture conspire to make a more perfect union of superb natural beauty and genuine hospitality. Picture deep green forests; cobalt blue seas; long, luxurious stretches of sandy beaches; secluded coves; towering snow-capped peaks; and leafy vales. Envision within all this the sophisticated metropolitan centre of Victoria, many lovely towns, hamlets and seaside villages. Victoria & Vancouver Island: An Altitude SuperGuide provides all you need to know to guide your experience of this spectacular setting.About the Author:
Writer and photographer Dan Klinglesmith can trace his Colorado roots back four generations. His great-great grandparents, John and Martha Barrow, came to the "Centennial State" in 1888, settling in Crested Butte. The mining camp was too rowdy a place to raise children so they moved to Hotchkiss, homesteading a few acres outside town on what is still called Barrow Mesa. Born on the Western Slope at Grand Junction, Dan fondly remembers summers spent horseback riding amidst the buttes and valleys that were first settled by his family. Growing up on the state's Front Range gave Dan a taste of big-city life, and he still calls Denver home. For the last decade, however, the world has become his backyard. Working as a freelance travel writer and photographer, Dan has crisscrossed the globe, penning articles for a wide variety of magazines and newspapers.
