This image appears in a just-released book by Gary Doi: In the Moment, Real Life Stories of Hope & Inspiration*. The image illustrates a Salt Spring story about a couple visiting the Island on Christmas Eve during a big snow, the ensuing steep hill problems and help from a local.
This photo shows the road at the top of the hill we live on. Four wheel drive only that day. Who wouldn’t love a snow day that looks like that?
Snow doesn’t seem to happen much on Salt Spring, at least not in the last few years. And not like 1996 where we had more than a meter on the ground. Or the year we built a two meter ‘green ninja turtle’ snowman at the end of the driveway for Halloween.

This is the Needles Ferry (Needles to Fauquier across Lower Arrow Lake). It’s been operating since 1913.
In an unprecedented move, Salt Spring Photos is heading out on the road for a couple of weeks. We’ll be back in business about September 26th.
