About this photo: Since the weather was nice, I was planning to go to Stanley Park late afternoon yesterday, but when I checked traffic online, my 25 min drive would now be a 50 min drive!! So I opted to go to Deer Lake in Burnaby near Vancouver, BC, Canada. I enjoyed a walk here and near the time I was going to leave, the water was quite calm, the sun brought out some nice fall colours and I was able to take this photo. Fall is slowly arriving in Vancouver and I love it, it's my favourite season!

Some information on Deer Lake Park: Burnaby is a city which belongs to the Greater Vancouver area and is about 10-15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. Deer Lake is a relaxing 5 kilometre/3 mile walk around an urban lake just outside of Vancouver. The walking trail around the lake is good any time of year and is very popular with dog walkers in and around Burnaby. Trails in the park lead to a kids playground, washrooms, a boat launch and picnic tables. In the summer months Deer Lake Boat Rentals offers canoe, kayak and pedal boat rentals. Gas or electric motors are not allowed on this lake.
Deer Lake is also home to the Burnaby Art Gallery, Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, Burnaby Village Museum and Century Gardens. The Burnaby Art Gallery manages the City of Burnaby's permanent art collection while the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts is a multi-purpose community arts facility providing public exhibitions, performances, festivals and art classes. The Burnaby Village Museum depicts life in the area from the 1920's. They have reconstructed 31 full scale buildings over 10 acres, with staff in costumes like in the 1920's.
