The Gradient and Water team (Jordy Searle, Ari Walker and David Bain) traveled around British Columbia for a month of adventures in the Canadian wilderness. Their late summer romp, powered by their trusty minivan, took them to BC classics like the Stikine, Elk, and the Ashlu. Ever the adventurers, the team also laced up their expedition boots for an exploratory run down the log-choked headwaters of the sacred Nass River in northern BC. Hop in the van with them to see what summer in BC is all about.
