I couldn’t take six months of -25 and the blowing cold we had last night, but with the sun shining and a good crunch on Mt. Doug’s paths, -5 is wholesome. Much better than the gray of yesterday, thank-you.
Little snow up on the mountain, in the Sooke Hills, or Blenkinsop Valley, at least as seen from the top.
Few hikers, only six, and as many cars in the lot which holds three times that many.
A lot of branches down and even some broom at the top was whipped up out of it’s roots.
This funny little bird was hanging around the cave entrance, and if I had brought my big Nikon, I probably would have gotten a better shot of it. Can’t stand lugging that camera though; the point and shoot will have to do.
It sounds like we are in for a few of these snow systems this year, and now that I’ve located the mitts and toque, I hope to put them to good use.
