Cheakamus Lake in the Garibaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia
We climbed up and down for a half day on the mountain route to Cheakamus
Lake. The trail
rolls up and down, but it is relatively flat. The first time to hike to
the lake was in the summer of 1974.
It was a very unforgettable memory for me, and I once again tried to walk
on the same trail route,
37 years after. This photograph was taken in June 2011.
Vancouver is a coastal city of British Columbia and ranks the third largest
in the country. It had a population of
about 580,000 and its Metropolitan Area exceed 2.1 million people based
on the 2006 census. Because of its location
on the Pacific Rim and the western terminus of the transcontinental highway
and rail routes of Canada, Vancouver is
one of the nation's largest industrial centres.
