Lidia led three pairs of microspikes and one pair of snowshoes up Holly Burn Mountain today.
At 8:35 the traffic up (especially to Cypress downhill area) was a long line and when we got back at noon the cars were parked far along the road out. That’s because the weather was delicious.
Long ago, a man named Lawson brought some English holly shrubs from his previous home in Vancouver’s West End and planted them near his home on the little creek near present day Lawson Park. “Burn” is a Scottish term and Lawson´s daughters suggested combining the two words to make “Hollyburn” as the name for their home.
