    Lynn Headwaters Regional Park

    From Rice Lake Parking Lot to Norvan Falls

     

    It was about 19 kms round trip and very little elevation 311m.

    It took us 6 plus hours on a day with some slippery sections, some sun and a sprinkle of water.

    The falls were falling into a heap when we got there and no one was tempted to go into that creek which still had traces of snow. Not many people of dogs on the trails this Tuesday.

     

    We spoke about everything from Brazilian butt lifts, Jehova Witnesses new modus operandi of sending ‘Dear Neighbour’ handwritten letters and postcards in the mail to unsuspecting occupants, to what do anthropologists say is true cultural identity anyway?

     

    Paid Parking is said to start at $2 per hour at the end of this month so get there soon.

    Thank you for your quick trip report, Patricia!
    Nice making up “Norvan Falls: North Vancouver Falls”…
    I just did a quick research. Apparently, there was a hockey team called Vancouver Norvan Shipyards: ” if one digs into the hockey history databases a bit, you come across a little-known team named Vancouver Norvan Shipyards from 1941/42.” – http://www.lowerlonsdale.ca/north-vancouver-shipyards-and-wartime-hockey/
    Thank you for this hike, Louise!
    You can see my album containing photos from yesterday: https://www.flickr.com/photos/benrose/albums/72157718592885736
    See you on the trails,
    Bengül
