Snow in the Quarry

… in the former quarry, that is. One that we Vancouverites know as Queen Elizabeth Park.

This is a lovely spot for nature lovers, and equally popular with locals wanting to show off our city to visitors.


That’s because, in addition to the conservatory, above, and some impressive plantings, the highest elevations of the park are 152 metres (almost 499 feet) above sea level.


That’s the highest elevation in our city, and makes for a panoramic view encompassing the city, waters and North Shore mountains.


This family of snowmen is popular with visitors, and the park’s usual residents – such as the little birdie below – have been adapting to the unusual weather.
