The first time I hiked around Rice Lake to my memory was in high school, though it's possible that I may have gone in elementary school before. Rice Lake is a popular hike in Vancouver in that it's easily accessible year round, and it also isn't really a hike as it's about as flat as Richmond.
Jessica and Anthony wanted to do their engagement shoot in the snow and I thought this would be a good opportunity to give Rice Lake a try because I had heard that it was frozen over. Not only was it frozen over, but it was thick enough for us to walk across!
Vancouver rarely gets lots of snow and it's winters aren't really that cold so who knows when Rice Lake will be frozen over again like it was. Glad to have taken the opportunity!
