I'm on a pic posting frenzy......
We had such great weather in May - made it real easy to get out
Crystal Dave and i went for a bike ride followed by grub and beer at the flying beaver. We parked at the Beaver and headed to Steveston, made it there in no time so continued on. This is just past Steveston some signs said Britannia Shipyard :dontknow:

Fynn Slough - this used to be a working fishing village - people still live there and are fighting some sort of eviction

Ended up biking to the massey tunnel - figured this would be a good spot to stop for a smoke
how does a fish end up here (we were right above the tunnel)

We ended up turning this little trip into a loop

we managed to do the most of this loop on trails which is purdy awesome for the amount of ground covered


On a sunny Sat Mel Adam and i headed to Buntzen Lake to hike the Diez Vistas Trail

I've been looking at it for a few years now - never had anyone to go with- i'd definately do it again
the first 5 vistas are the best the rest are kinda growing over. its about 500m elevation gain and to do the whole loop its roughly 15km
