Spring has finally begun, with sunshine and rain and outdoor adventures beginning all around the Kootenays. I’ve been talking a lot with businesses looking for spring giveaways and watching friends and family members looking for the right gear to prep their activities for spring. It’s always an exciting time of year, full of promise as we ditch the snowpants and don the swimsuits. There are so many new products for this season, but I think the photo above is all I want to post for now – an Easter shot with blue sky, clouds, snow peaks and still waters. Sweet.
