LOCATION: Buntzen Lake, Port Moody

It’s about time to be getting back out into the woods, sans skis or snowshoes and what better place to do that than along the banks of one of our beautiful local lakes? I remember many a happy day spent exploring here as a kid and it’s still (all these many, many years later) a favourite destination for a great day out that’s not too far out of the city. Buntzen Lake is within the BC Hydro Recreation Area and some of the trails that start here venture into Indian Arm Provincial Park. There are a good few great trails to choose from, many boasting stunning views of Burrard Inlet, Indian Arm and Deep Cove. Enjoy.
Thanks for reminding us of this amazing place with such a lovely photo, Chris! I think I’ll pay it a visit this weekend.
There was a lot of amazing photography in the pool this week folks, please keep posting and spreading the word about the Unplugged Flickr Pickr.
