Lynn Creek, North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

My first incursion into the Canadian outdoors took me on an out and back hike along the course of Lynn Creek. A sub-adult black bear had been seen in the area only two days before so it was just as well that I had bear spray with me and accessible though I never did see a bruin. The day was hot so the shade was appreciated even if it restricted views and enforced the idea of remaining vigilant to the presence of wild creatures that you never would meet in Britain or Ireland. This was an outing that easily proved to be satisfying and worthwhile.
