Lynn Canyon

It still amazes me, even after living in Vancouver for three years, just how beautiful this city is. The ability to hop in your car and be in the mountain, or lounging on the beach (when it isn’t freezing cold in the middle of January), or exploring a nearby park; the options are limitless. Having said that, my current favourite place to take friends and family who are visiting is Lynn Canyon. It is free to visit, there is an amazing suspicion bridge, and a small hike that is suitable for nearly everyone. Rob and I were bored last weekend and looking for something to do, and after driving around for a few minutes in North Van (we may or may not have gotten a little lost) we somehow ended up at Lynn Canyon. It was a beautiful day so we decided to hop out and go for a stroll. Below is a few shots from our short hike! Enjoy!

Tower Beach

I’ve heard that Tower Beach at UBC is a nice, quiet spot to check out, but I had no idea just how beautiful it would be! We weren’t really dressed appropriately given the weather, and definitely didn’t have the right shoes on to be trekking through the trails and along the slippery rocky beach, but it was worth it! In case you aren’t sure where to locate Tower Beach, check out the map below.

 

Freezing Fog

For some reason I woke up VERY early this morning and couldn’t fall back asleep – so I decided to make the most of it and head out on a little early morning photo adventure. Although my initial plan was to capture the sunrise from Jericho Beach, I quickly realized that there wouldn’t be any sunrise today given the thick fog! But, that was okay! Apart from the below-zero temperature I thoroughly enjoying my walk around Jericho Beach and managed to capture some of the “Freezing Fog” that was rolling through.
