Vancouver is famous for it’s rain, which surprisingly (and gratefully) we have not had a lot of since our arrival here in December.  The day the walking group decided to visit Whyte Lake however was not one of those days!  We were in the forrest though so we did not get as wet as you would when out in the open.  

Whyte Lake is in West Vancouver and I was pretty excited to hear there was such a place as my maiden name is Whyte!  I wonder if some distant relative is connected to this place.  The day we visited the lake was half frozen and very mysterious looking – a bit like a movie scene and very different to the description and photos you can find here.  Even half the walk ways at the lake were covered in water so it will be great to head back during summer to see how different it looks.

The rainy weather also meant that I didn’t want to take my “good” camera with me  so these few shots that give you a brief look at a very misty and cold Whyte Lake are taken with my iPhone camera.

Lynn Canyon is a fabulous spot to visit in North Vancouver.  We took the girls over on a rainy Sunday so we could see the suspension bridge & waterfalls and take a walk on the trails.  

Vancouver has two great suspension bridges that cross over some beautiful canyons.  Lynn Canyon is the quieter and less famous of the two so it wasn’t too busy the day we visited – it is also the free one!  It is narrow though so lucky there weren’t too many people out for a visit the day we were there!

We look forward to visiting again when the weather is warmer when we can go down to the river and possibly take a dip!  Find out how to get to Lynn Canyon here!
