ah, the crisp, refreshing air of the pacific northwest,
home to lumberjacks, and mounties,
and assorted other flannel clad masculine stereotypes that i keep waiting to run into up here, but am not.
cruel pacific northwest.
as you can tell, the air is clean, the mountainsides snow-capped and, you know,
and all is still on the brink of spring.
we have decided to take advantage of the weather and the scenery to do several
nature hikes in the region:
connie has been doing a very very good job of collecting local specimens,
she has been particularly focused on categorizing the fauna from the flora.
i love this shot. it's so representative of the locals' love of the great outdoors,
and the essential joie de vivre all vancouverians have.
