Frisbee golf in the snow

At E.T. Seton park

Added 2011-12-30

Last week, after playing a round of frisbee golf in splendid spring-like weather, I took the following photo on the way home, going up the trail from E.T. Seton park to Leslie and Vanderhoof.

What a difference this week. Here's the same view on my way down into the park.

Couldn't resist taking another shot of the gorgeous 1884 high level bridge. My frisbee friends are probably well tired of me prattling on about how remarkable this bridge is.

This is the basket for the 1st hole. Frisbee golf in winter is not that difficult, and the only difference is perhaps that you're a little bulkier on your drives due to the extra clothing.

The snow covered park is absolutely stunning in its beauty. Here we are approaching the 3rd hole basket.

Keep ya loot, gimme some snow.

Keep ya loot -- give me some truth

Horse and rider only. Don't even think of riding your bike down into the river.

On a day like today, there's sure to be ample bike parking.

On our approach to the 9th basket, Aubrey's frisbee (that dark object in the snow in the foreground) is well ahead of mine. As I'm lining up to shoot, Aubrey says, sort of jokingly, "Here's the putt of the day." And don't I just ~nail~ the sucker. We paced it off afterwards—24 yards.

How do you follow that up? By making your birdie shot too.

Aubrey maintained his lead all through the back nine and ended up with a 2-under 83. I closed the gap with a birdie on 12 and another really great long birdie putt on 13, but still ended two strokes back with an even par 85.

On the way home, another great photo of the beauty of E.T. Seton park in the snow.
