On New Year’s Day, Uncle Weed takes a snowy ramble into the woods around Mt. Cypress encountering earnest tobogganists, snowshoe prints, and windswept Hollyburn cabins. Over a bowl of Purple Kush, he recounts tales of tasty ales, resolutions, cross country skiing, foreign expeditions, and personal documentation while remarking on the varieties of lichen and moss on the trees.
DaveO shares knowledge like a tour guide on a visit to a scenic lookout point on Mt. Cypress road.
After pointing vaguely towards the Gulf Islands, Fraser Valley, Burrard Inlet, Stanley Park and Lions’s Gate Bridge, he caressingly creates a few panorama shots of the environs with a soundtrack of earnest folks taking photos.
