Roses 2

At once the roses are flowering again. Last weekend I was in the Burnaby Mountain Park and took some pictures of these beautiful flowers after rain. Now I'd like to share them with you.

Lynn Canyon

Yesterday I with my friends went for a hike in Lynn Canyon, North Vancouver. There are many trails for hiking. Also there is located another suspension bridge about which I mentioned earlier, 50 metres above the canyon. We were walking 3.5 hours; it was great despite the fact that we got caught in the rain. There are some photos.

Queen Elizabeth Park

One of the beautiful parks I've ever seen is Queen Elizabeth Park located in Vancouver. It's so colorful, an, by the way, it's absolutely free.

Here are the photos taken last year with a simple camera in May (по-русски мыльницей :) ) and semi-professional camera in September 2011. You can see a difference between them.

Chinese Garden

Last weekend my husband and I were walking in the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver.  Big fish and turtles are swimming there. For me it's was so interesting; I was looking at them like a child. The park is small but beautiful. I think I will go there again some day.  Here are some pictures from there.

Vancouver Aquarium

It rains again in Vancouver. Where can you go when the rainy or cold weather? One of the places is the Vancouver Aquarium. You can go there either alone or with your family. It relaxes when you just watch fish. There are different kind of colorful fish and more. Here is just some of them.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

While it's again raining in Vancouver, I decided to return to my hiking in Capilano Suspension Bridge in April. The suspension bridge was originally built in 1889; it's 136 metres long and 70 metres above the river. 

Recently cliffwalk, like small bridges, became another plus of this place. When I was there last April, they just mentioned about it. Now it's already open. 

Moreover, this place has a mini-museum about native people. 

This is the interesting place, but it's expensive (for one adult - $31.95) and too small for hiking. I bought the membership for one year since the price was the same for one visit and for membership for a year. By the way, another suspension bridge is located in Vancouver, a little shorter. It's absolutely free and there is also a beautiful place, but about it some another time :) 

Here are some pictures were taken by a simple camera and weren't processed. Dates of taking pictures are April 2011 and 2012. So, this post is not about the photos but about the place.
