While not really a lake, this is a big puddle at the top

Can you see the chain used to help hikers?

At the top of the mountain
Now these birds are a must-see item when at the zoo. If you can cath them at feeding time they never cease to amaze!
Buy your tickets fast….they sell out early!
Entrance to the Greater Vancouver Regional Zoo
I love trains and train stuff…can you tell?
Train runs pretty much all day long and costs $2 per ticket. it’s a great way to see the park on a hot or rainy day!
Yup, actual reindeer! Most likely Santa’s herd, on loan for the summer zoo season? ps…and no, he wasn’t there. There’s a pub in town so we’ll say he was ‘at the well’
Tall and spooky these things look like they could peck your eyeballs out!
Smokin fast horse-like animal with long slender horns….kinda neat.
This is the only exhibit that can be seen before you get inside. There are 4 or 5 sheep and you can get fairly close to them.
Usually rarely seen as they are underwater, this time round they were lazing in the sun close by!
Colorful and noisy, these birds really put on a show!
Nasty looking animal…what do these big birds actually do?
Now these birds are a must-see item when at the zoo. If you can catch them at feeding time they never cease to amaze!
Duck pond in March…..it seems to get better in the summer!
Friendly lil buggers these donkeys. Ever heard one brea close-up? It’s L-O-U-D!
Kids love the donkeys and the donkeys LOVE the kids!!
This sucker has to be 15 feet tall!
The buffalo normally are seen from a small bus that goes through the fenced areas but the zoo was performing renos while we were there.
There were 6 baboons in this cage, all the females were grooming the males! lol
Ugly bugger but one of the first large animals you’ll see!
The natural beauty here is unbelievable. Really something to see!

Looking down at the Coquihalla River
Dark entrance to one of the tunnels. It’s dark, damp, and almost spooky in there! reat place to cool off in the heat of the summer. The contrast between outside and inside temperature is amazing!
Trail that was the old trackbed. The fallen cedar tree over the trail is at least 4 feet around!
Old sign board near the end of the trail
Approach to one of the tunnels
Very well groomed gravel
