That winter feeling
Mt. Seymour to pick up the season's passes for my boys this year, and while there wasn't as much snow as the last time I was up there, it was wonderful to enjoy the wintery feeling, despite the warmish weather here in Vancouver. We ended up hiking on the snow-shoe trails part of the way to the look-out (last time Sasha and I did the 2.5 km that it took to get there) and noticed that dogs are now allowed on the trail as well. Not that we have a dog, but there were some beautiful dogs clearly enjoying the snow as much as my boys. Also new at Seymour- the magic carpet to take kids just learning to ski or snow-board up the bunny hill. Sure beats the tow-rope! And someone parked their vintage snowshoes on the trail- the kind I'd be hanging up in my home if I had a pair! (The owner's bags were close by so I didn't quite feel like I could mess with these to stand both shoes up-right for the photo... does anyone know what the smaller one on the ground would be for? It was on it's own...)
Only a few more days until Christmas! I'll be taking some time off of blogging to really enjoy things around here, but I just thought I'd pass along a very Merry Christmas from my family to yours. Thank you all for stopping by my blog, leaving comments and being interested in what I do and make.
