Hollyburn Mountain drawathlon

I made a quick run up Hollyburn today.  I was all alone on the mountain, except for the three- or four-hundred other people.  I drew one large group trudging up the hill, looking like gold-rushers heading for the Yukon, except for all the Gore-tex.  A raven flew overhead, waiting for trail-mix hand-outs, or the eyeballs of any who succumbed.  The Lions were still there when I got to the top.  In fact they hadn't moved much since I last drew them, but they looked somber today as snow clouds built above them.  It started snowing on the way down, as I paused to draw another multi-coloured multitude massing for the view of Vancouver.
