The Wonder of Winter


On the rare occasions that we get a nice snowfall in Vancouver, I find myself dropping everything to go outside and take some photos. Seeing the magical transformation of the UBC Pacific Spirit Park and the University Golf Course is really sensational. Once when my kids were little we decided to go to the golf course to cross country sky after a snowfall. There were small hills just perfect for them to ski on. Suddenly an agitated young man ran out of the club house and asked what we were doing. I answered that we were going to cross country ski. “Well”, he answered, still concerned, “As long as you stay off the greens”! I had no idea what a “green” was back then, and as everything was white, we skied all afternoon.
