Lynn Headwaters, Dog Beach & Capilano Canyon with Mum & Dad

Adrians parents visited for three weeks this September. We took them away for the middle week to a house we had rented in the Kootenays (see next post).

During the first week we got a walk in at Lynn Headwaters completing the Varley Trail and then crossing Lynn Creek and returning alongside the river back to the parking lot.

As I had Mojo I didn't take my camera for these first few walks so it's thanks to Mum for these photos.

Dad, Mojo and I on the trail at Headwaters.

Back home after our walk.

We also headed out to the dog beach at Ambleside when we needed to go to Park Royal and it gave Mojo a walk at the same time.
Mojo did lots of stick fetching, when he wasn't being distracted by other dogs to play with !

Later in the first week we took a walk in Capilano Canyon.
While most of the forest at Capilano Canyon is new growth, there is still some old growth left, these trees are identifiable as they are usually huge with giant trunks

The damp environment sees lots of moss growing on some of the trees

View up the canyon towards the dam which was only a trickle as we haven't had much rainfall

Small falls just south of the dam

Views along the canyon

The forest is a rich source of good sticks to fetch
