Crosscut, a dandy online publication in Seattle that features News of the Great Nearby (Washington/Oregon/Idaho/British Columbia), takes a fresh, regional look at the Pacific Northwest.
In today's edition, my photo of Victoria's Ross Bay Cemetery is featured on the front page. It's also featured here.
One of my favorite ways to get to know a place is by visiting a community's cemetery.
On a recent trip to Victoria, I toured the Victorian-era Ross Bay Cemetery.
Much to my surprise, legendary artist Emily Carr is buried there.
