December ushered in a fresh dose of stormy weather, following November’s sharp, clear snapping cold (unusual for balmy Vancouver).
Not quite art-by-the sea, this beautiful watershed forms a pristine water bowl of thirst-quenching liquid for Vancouver. Overlooking Cleveland Dam and ‘The Lions’ – twin peaks above, a picnic site.
Venture deeper into the watershed with Metro Vancouver tour guides: historical remnants, ongoing fishery innovations – how DO those salmon return – and fascinating looks from “inside out” at high altitude lakes, peaks, wildlife and plant communities.
On Stanley Park’s Seawall there’s more than meets the eye, from Eagle’s flights announced loudly from high in the Doug Firs, to tiny shells hidden under middens of wave action pounding at low tide. From art inspired by beaches, to bike and walking lanes sporting new red paint separations. Where have you found treasures along this coast shoreline?
