It is not a secret that winters in Vancouver area are mostly rainy and not so cold, in general. I mean, there is still some snow on nearby mountains – considerable amount, according to my colleague who is spending his weekends on ski terrains on Cypress mountain and Mt. Seymour – but we are witnessing changes in nature around us.
I made this photo 3 weeks ago :faint:
But there is still a lot of rain and probably will be even more in next few months. But when a weather clears up, staying at home feels like wasting of a precious opportunity. Since we started a new hiking season there is a decision to use every nice Saturday to go hiking. Even in neighbourhood. Even when a trail is short and easy.
I know, I know, it looks like a jungle but it's not that bad. And the beginning of trail is only 5 minutes by car from where we live 😀
Anyway, we plan some serious hikes this summer and that will require some preparations. In both physical and mental ability. Earlier we start, the better.
Yesterday it was supposed to rain but unexpectedly it cleared up in the morning so we went to a nearby Lighthouse Park. The air was warm and ocean was quiet.
