1896’s version of a smart meter, on display at the Powerhouse at Stave Falls near Mission BC. Well worth the $6 admission to this museum. #bchydro

I hope you don’t unfollow because of this scary mummified salmon I captured in a dried up riverbed in the Paradise Valley. Chum salmon have CRAZY teeth. But the craziest thing is that there were many portions of the river where salmon had laid their eggs last year which didn’t hatch before the water level went down. While walking I found a tiny hole something had dug in the sand and noticed eggs all around it. Confused at first, I dug a bit myself and found the area was teeming with rotting eggs just under the surface of the sand. Millions of eggs won’t make their way to become fish, so it’s a good thing the Department of Fisheries and Oceans hatches something like 400 million per year in their Salmonid Enhancement program that’s been running since 1977.

The view from @thepeakvancouver studios this morning. I just realized I’ve been doing a weekly feature from this perch for almost 5 years now! This May will be the anniversary. #peakmornings

This 745 foot wide public art installation is currently stretched between the 24th floor of the Fairmont Waterfront and the Vancouver Convention Centre West. It’s a part of #TED2014 and at night becomes an interactive piece controlled by you and your phone. Get down and see it before March 21st as it’ll likely leave town as soon as the supergenius tent gets folded up for the year. #yvr #vancouverbc #vancouverisawesome #vancity #igersvancouver #britishcolumbia

The @museumofvan is opening an exhibit called ‘Rewilding Vancouver’ on February 27th and they sent out this photo in their promo kit. Amazing. Looking forward to checking it out. #vancouverisawesome #yvr #vancouver

A couple years ago my family and I fell in love with #Vancouver’s Olympic Village. A few months later we were living here thanks to a year-long partnership I facilitated with @rennievancouver where I was blogging about the experience. We now live just across from the Village proper, on 1st Ave in Southeast False Creek, and as #Olympics fans love being surrounded by the legacies of the Vancouver Winter Games. We went out and played ball hockey in our 2010 #teamcanada jerseys today (a gift from @nike during the Games - mine has KRONBAUER on the back and my son’s says ARLO) right next to the Olympic Truce Installation. You’ll notice on the top left square there’s a circle missing. That’s illustrating that this is the artwork used for the #Van2010 medals; from what I understand there was a large piece of First Nations art that they were all cut from, no two being the same. My friend @shawnparkinson worked on it and can tell you more.

Another one of the sweet old trophies that #CKNW radio has in their case. This one’s from 1998. LOVE the stylized map of #britishcolumbia.

On #saltspring, and most all of the Gulf Islands, there are roadside stands like this one that are unmanned and rely on the honour system. Take a dozen eggs from this Fowl Mood Farm one and leave the money in the tin. Others have pies, bacon (!), vegetables, wool products etc. It’s quite a thing, the honour system. Also, look closely to the left and behind this one and you’ll see the world’s friendliest sheep photobombing. It let @katiekronbauer pet it! #explorebc
