Capilano Canyon, January 2010.

Today was bright and sunny so while we didn't have time for a long walk did manage to fit in a circuit at Capilano Canyon.

We took the same route we had walked with Mum and Dad back in September so no new photos here...... although it is refreshing to have some sunny photos to post !

Views of Capilano Lake and the Lions beyond.

Panorama of the lake and North Shore Mountains.

View of the mountains to the north of the lake including Crown Mountain with some snow on the left and Grouse on the right with none. The amount of visible snow on the mountaintops is equivilent to what you might expect in May or early June, not January.

However, the plentiful rainfall has kept the lake full and the dam in full flow

Looking back at the dam

Looking downstream past the fish hatchery

Finally a view further down the canyon.
