Canada Trip Day 7: Capilano Reservoir & Cleveland Dam

19 June 2010 - The Capilano Reservoir Lake is a scenic visit of serene waters with the Lions Mountains in the background. Despite the thick cloud cover at the summit of the mountains, the view was nonetheless breath-taking. Roses and other flowers which lined the lakeside were blooming. The park was filled with families having picnics on mats or some people lying on sun-bathing beds or under parasols. Children were happily chasing each other in this promising, lovely summer weather.

Standing at the lakeside to take in the view of the lake and mountains was a wonderful experience. We walked along the lakeside towards the left where a stairway led us to a side view of the Cleveland Dam. Water was coming down in huge splashes, pouring into Capilano River. I found the view of the rocky cliffs along the dark green waters of Capilano River pretty.
