Keeping busy in a (Vancouver) Winter Environment

3

Weather is subjective. A Vancouverite can only tolerate so much, while it is -40 in Alberta us west-coasters cringe at the dash rarely placed before a temperature. This weekend was one of those times where the mercury sunk below the zero mark and water became ice. Trying to venture outside the comfort zone of the average YVR local, Kelly and I went out for a couple hikes. One hike had tennis racket shoes (also known as snowshoes) while the other was slightly more traditional.

here are a few photos from the two different hikes. These shots come from Mt Seymour Provincial Park and Deer Lake Park in Burnaby BC.

Enjoy!

Letting the dog take us for a walk

0

Getting out there doesn’t always mean an epic-trans-continental adventure… Realizing that taking a dog for a walk can be an adventure on its owncan open real doors in enjoyment and photography. The following photos are nothing more than a walk in the park. But, at the same time taking the camera along on an otherwise non-adventure made for a fun deviation from simplicity. Getting Gus (the Bernese Mountain Dog) excited was as easy as pie and made for a great time and resulted in some great photos.

A day out with the dog

I miss having a dog

I grew up with a golden retriever and have always loved the breed. In a dog free house, I’ll take any chance I get to go out for a hike with a friend’s four legged friend.
