Photographer's Note

This photo was taken from Burnaby Mountain in Burnaby near Vancouver, Canada. You can see a view of the Burrard Inlet in the foreground, followed by Belcarra and Indian Arm (an 18km/11mi long fjord). Since it's such an expansive view I decided to crop it to a panorama.

I had hoped to post a larger version here on TE, but I guess this photo is not narrow enough to be a panoram, so please have a look at my external link to Larger Version of this photo

About this photo: On Saturday it was raining most of the day, but they said it was going to be sunny on Sunday. Well, we had to take advantage of that, but we didn't want to go too far. So, we first stopped at Burnaby Mountain which is about 10 minutes driving from our place. From up here the views are always so beautiful and it looked like the mountains got a dusting of fresh snow. After that we went to Barnet Marine Park which is about 5 minutes from Burnaby Mountain...photos from there will follow.

Some information on Burnaby Mountain: Burnaby is a city which belongs to the Greater Vancouver area and is about 10-15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Burnaby Mountain is one of the beautiful places to visit in Burnaby and is located near the Simon Fraser University. The views over the mountains, the Burrard Inlet, downtown Vancouver and Indian arm from up here make it such a great place. This is a fairly popular destination popular visitors and locals alike. The green hillside offers room to throw a frisbee or send a kite soaring. There is a network of trails which offer a variety of hiking, walking and jogging options. There is also a playground tucked away in the upper hillside.

The Centennial Pavilion area features the Rose Garden, with its vibrant colours in season and a great variety of roses. Nearby is the acclaimed Horizons restaurant and two majestic totem poles, a reminder of the community's proud native heritage. Towering over the distant city are the tall Kamui Mintara (Playground of the Gods) sculptures. The Kamui Mintara is more than a dozen carved poles created by Japanese sculptors Nuburi Toko and his son, Shusei. These impressive sculptures commemorate the goodwill between Burnaby and its sister city, Kushiro, Japan.

Burnaby Mountain is a great place to enjoy in any season as there are always the beautiful views over the city, the mountains, the Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm (a coastal fjord of about 18km/11.25mi long).
