It has been particularily nice and sunny here in the Vancouver area, and recently we took advantage of this by going for a long walk one morning.
Along the trails in Burnaby Lake park grow a whole lot of skunk cabbage. Despite the name, these plants don't smell too badly from a distance. The plant's yellow flowers are very beautiful.
The weather was lovely - sunny and not too warm. Even though we are quite close to the city, these paths make you think you're in a different place.
We ran into a lot of public art during our walk, like these two metal eagles near the playing fields.
And these vibrant mushrooms someone painted on to a concrete barrier just before the pedestrian overpass that leads to Lake City Way skytrain station.
