Dave and I are in the big city for the weekend. So we decided to do a big city run. Dave was pleasantly surprised when I found us a route that took us up the Capilano Canyon, on the border between West Van and North Van. Didn’t even have to put on our road-runners – it was almost like home!
Well, it's not every day that Dave and I run under a highway overpass on the way to our trail run.
We took a side trail down from the main one - amazing, the feel of being in totally wild country, right in the middle of the city!...and then we look up to the left, and there is someone's mansion up at the top of the wilderness!!
Lovely trails though... a nice change from all the right-angled concrete and glass.
Wow, the canyon is REALLY steep!
Dave really liked this bridge because the boards stuck out... or something like that. Maybe some day he will start writing the photo captions.
Here he is, looking at how the boards stick out.
Whoa! Lots of water coming over the dam. The photo doesn't do it justice...
Here I am am, running across the top of the dam. Vancouver's water supply. Pretty cool to have this amazing route right in the middle of the city
