We went up to Grouse Mountain again this week and I tried out my new hat. It kinda makes me look a bit like a Yeti but it keeps my ears warm. We stopped by and visited the resident Grizzly bears before they curled up for a snooze for the winter. I have decided that they are very nasty beasts and I wouldn’t want to meet one on a deserted trail in the woods. They have such massive claws and big knarly unpolished teeth. It snowed at the house here last night and we are all very excited about the upcoming ski season. The kids are booked in for their ski lessons starting on Boxing Day. We have all the gear so it should be great fun.
