7TH ISSUE - SPRING IS HERE! DEER LAKE IN BURNABY

Spring is definitely here! Warm days with a fresh breeze. Perfect for a walk around Deer Lake in Burnaby. 

I had issues with Lightroom recently so I only brought my Nikon F3T and iPhone X ( Edited with Lightroom CC Mobile).

  • Nikon F3T - 35mm f/2 - 50mm f/2 - 105mm f/2.5

  • iPhone X - Moment Wide Lens - Portrait Mode

7TH ISSUE - SPRING ISHERE! DEER LAKE IN BURNABY

So many things to do in this park. The lake is quite large to use canoe. I’ve seen many people fishing looking for rainbow trouts. I also really enjoy the historic Burnaby village. Gorgeous during winter time with the Christmas lights.

6TH ISSUE - CHILLIWACK LAKE PROVINCIAL PARK

There are some of these days when you open a map, look for a point of interest and drive there. That is what happened with Chilliwack Park. I wanted to see a lake so I looked at which lake nearby we could go to (nearby meant, reachable within the day). In this case it was through Google Maps since I have yet to find a printed map of the Vancouver area that I actually like.  

Once reached Abbotsford, the road takes you between fields and woods and then follow the river that leads to Chilliwack Lake. Late March, the access by car to the park was closed so we all parked on the side of the road. To access the lake, we walked on the new campground (still in construction). It is supposed to open for the long weekend in May.

The lake is surrounded by mountains. At this time of the year peaks are still under the snow. Probably another great lake to explore on a canoe. There are also few hikes around the lake that leads in the mountains.

CHILLIWACK PROVINCIAL PARK

1 hour and half heading east from Vancouver Metrotown. Campgrounds need to be booked in advance. During the off season, the gate is closed so you can parked on the side of the road (it’s the end of the road so you are not blocking traffic) and you then need to walk to the lake for 10-15min passing by the campground.
