Alton Sterling, 37, was shot and killed by police officers on Tuesday, July 5, while he was selling CDs outside of a convenience store. The following day, Philando Castile, 32, was shot and killed by a police officer after he was stopped for a broken tail light. Videos of both killings were widely shared on social media, causing hundreds to take to the streets in protest of police actions, as well as memory of the two men killed. Thursday night, snipers shot and killed five officers at such a protest in Dallas, Texas. Questions of police brutality, America’s historic racism, the Black Lives Matter movement, and second amendment rights have been pushed to the forefront of the nation’s consciousness.

Photo of the Week: Winter Magic on Cypress Mountain

Winter, Cypress Mountain, Vancouver, British Columbia

Winter wonderland on Cypress Mountain, British Columbia

I captured these winter scenes while snowboarding on Cypress Mountain earlier this week. Surprisingly, the Vancouver local mountains continue to see an impressive amount of snowfall well into the month of March. I don’t want to be greedy, but I hope this trend continues into April.

Last year at this time the local mountains were closed for skiing because there was virtually no snow base left. Heading into the ski season there were several reports that this season was to be much of the same. I’m so glad the weather predictions were wrong!

We’re so fortunate to live in a place where we can squeeze in a few runs after work. We had the mountain all to ourselves that evening, which was unexpected given that it’s Spring Break and most of the kids are out of school. I wasn’t complaining!

Photo of the Week: Walking on Lake Louise

Walking on a frozen Lake Louise, Alberta

One of the coolest (pun intended) things we did last year was visiting Banff and Lake Louise during the winter. It’s a four season destination but most of the tourist flow happens in the summer months, so it was a real treat to be in the Canadian Rockies in its “off season”.

A highlight from the trip was being able to walk to the middle of Lake Louise, surrounded by towering snow-capped peaks and forest covered in a blanket of fresh snow. Pure magic!
