The fallen leaves and colours are a giveaway that this footage was from the fall. I just got to putting together a little montage now. Stanley Park is fantastic. I always look forward to seeing the raccoons. Cute enough to feed, it's hard to resist the urge.
Possible captions for this photo could be "Walking on Top of the World", "Jumping for Joy", "Celebrating Nature", "Up Upon High". What was actually being said at the time was more along the lines of, "Oh shoot! Ok, try it again. Ready? On the count of 3. One, two, THREE!"
