Still waiting ... so nothing for it but to sort through some photographs. This photo* was emailed to me this week by Alice who lives in Vancouver. Wow! Look at that white stuff!
And looking for another photo completely, (of Alice and I in VOC days at UBC) I ran across this one: me at Larch Hills, Salmon Arm, 1984, in the days when cross-country skiing was just becoming established in British Columbia. I must have been home for Christmas - don't know who took the photo.
