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.
I went snowshoeing up Mt Seymour yesterday. Climbing through the clouds the visibility was pretty poor but it did open up enough to snap a few photos along the way. I have now hiked this route twice but have yet to see the supposed view from the top. Another day! All the photos below were taken using a Canon 7D and a Canon 300mm f4l lens.
Last week was the first time the 2012 Norco Bikes were shown outside headquarters. Select dealers from around the world were in attendance getting a chance to see, learn and ride the latest from the lineup. With some sun, rain, and everything between it was a whole lot of work but still a lot of fun. Situated in North Vancouver we next head up to Whistler’s Crankworx Festival for the Media Launch.
Coming up to the end of February, it seemed to me that Spring was close. It was getting warmer, flowers were starting to sprout and the days were seeming longer. With that in mind, the bike came out and was ready to spring into the season. But… then it started snowing, raining, freezing and getting pretty much miserable. Oh well, any day on the bike is a good one right?
