Just back from Mammoth Mountain where she wrote about skiing the black runs of Cornice Bowl and photographed the tufa towers of Mono Lake. Before that, was skiing in Sun Peaks, BC, and before that, photographing northern lights at 40 below in Churchill, Manitoba. January involved yet more skiing again in Canada. Summer is for catchup on photos but there is a planned return for scuba in Kosrae in Micronesia during early August, more photography for Getty Images, more stories for Chicago Tribune and Buckettripper, among others. There is also a possibility of Uganda and Dubai later this year.
Just got the word that I've won the 2013 Travel Media Excellence Award from Tourism Saskatchewan for a series of articles I wrote on Regina, including "The 24-Hour Royal Canadian Mountie," "Fortuna Restorante Italiano: A New Italian Winner in Regina, SK," "Italian Star Deli, Regina, SK: Authentic Italian Deliciousness," all published on www.realfoodtraveler.com and "Why Regina, SK is Canada's New Foodie Hot Spot" on www.vacay.ca.
Also, won First Place in 2013 Online Culinary Writing at the Northern Lights Awards in New York City, presented by Canadian Tourism Commission.
