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.

Kelowna has done a great job of developing the waterfront and building a lovely boardwalk to get you from The Dolphins condos and The Okanagan Grand Resort Hotel to City Park. There was a break in the foot traffic here on Saturday.
This rock cut-through along a Myra section of the Kettle Valley Railway in Kelowna reminded me of my kitchen countertop. Although this is shale I think, and not granite. I don't think two of the four people in this photo even noticed the rock around them since they were pretty busy trying to bundle up against the elements.
Effects from the Okanagan Mountain Park Fire of 2003 are still visible along the Myra Canyon Trail. The green of some spruce here alongside a hollow stand of burnt trees serve as a visible reminder of the fire that evacuated 27,000 people.
Usually when a governing body goes to the trouble to print signs to inform the public, the signs have some sense of formality. Given this sign is to advise dogs and their guardians where they're allowed to walk, it only makes sense to post the sign in both human and dog language so both understand. The West Coast of BC is very dog-friendly.
