29th & Imperial Road. From here to 16th Avenue there are no houses, no street lights, and only a few signs… Imperial Road cuts through the very eastern edge of the UBC Endowment Lands, and at night you can easily think you’re in the middle of nowhere. When they had to shoot spooky, isolated, forest road scenes for the X-Files this is where they came. Actually I made that up, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

Parked under the trees the rain sounded extra splattery, fat drops rolling off the branches and slapping the roof. I really liked being here.
