Following the seasons, Mike enjoys trekking across the spectacular world-class park systems of Canada and USA during the warmer months - skiing in the cooler ones - and has a particular interest in the regions’ diverse wildlife, geography and history. Since 1995, he’s called beautiful Vancouver Island home. “There’s a special feeling in the air here.”
