This morning's view of Vancouver's North Shore mountains from south of the Fraser River. The ski hills have already been open at least once -- the earliest opening in years.

Just thought I'd tell you that Caroline is going to join my 100Me group blog... do you want to join? I don't know if you saw my response to your comment, so thought I'd put it here, too. I've not tried the group thing before, but I do think it will be tons of fun.

Now that is what I call a view - gorgeous!

And yes I have asked nan if I can join her 100 fact blog... I've done 38 but then in looking for a link I discovered that a book puzzle I tried to solve years ago is open again... and I've just had to get reacquainted with the puzzle...

I had to come back for another look - it's enough to make me want to emigrate :-)

Definitely awesome and breathtaking!

I grew up at the foot of these mountains. Now I can only see them on a clear day from this neighbourhood. An early snow cover like this bodes well for the 2010 winter Olympics. It's always touch-and-go in our mild coastal climate.

Snow...it's in the forecast here as well. There were some small flurries on the night I attended the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. I was actually out and up late enough to catch the occurrance! Did you have to go far to take that photos or is that from your kitchen window (LOL)? You are really having fun with that camera of yours. Your harness racing images reminded me of the ones I got Sunday night as my husband was driving us...I'll put one up on my blog this week. Gotta go back to work now that I am a 9-5er again, but sometimes I sneak over the internet cafe to amuse myself at lunch!

andrea do you ski? it must be so beautiful there right now. I used to stay in Kitsalano with some of my canadian and british friends for a couple months every year. It was so nice! I'm married to a canadian! andrea you are the dearest person for paying me the highest copliment from artist to artist. I have an uncoventional life and career, I just paint as i go but i always have fun!

Teri: you haven't lived in TO long enough to hear the grumblings from Torontonians about Lotus Land (Vancouver) once winter really hits. It rarely snows here. The perfect balance is snow in the local ski hills but not down here in the city and valley, just like in the photo!

Val: I used to ski but it's way too pricey now for the starving artist! I took the photo from my immediate neighbourhood: two streets over actually.
