The Admiralty Point Trail runs south from its trailhead in Belcarra Park in the village of Belcarra and continues south to Burns Point via Cod Rock and Admiralty Point. This is a selection of photos I took on the Saturday, August 28th hike which took three hours down and back, including to stop for photos! Aside from plenty of conifers of various types and deciduous trees like alder and such, there are lots of ferns to be seen plus a few colourful surprises.
I did take a series of photos of this conifer tree growing on a nurse stump. This is just one of them. Then if you look closely, there are signs of autumn colour in various places.
Some of the tree are tall, very tall. Then a group of kayakers started off from one of the small beaches on the way down to Admiralty Point.
I did manage to get a shot of a spider web caught in the sunlight. This shot is facing into the light! There's another shot of that ship you've seen before in the previous post on the trail.
There's a shot of a small beach and Cod Rock in the photo above and a view west-southwest looking down Burrard Inlet in the image below.
Admiralty Point and the land that includes it and Burns Point actually is Federal Crown land leased to the city of Vancouver. The end of the lease period is coming up soon.
Before continuing to Burns Point I did try to get a good photos of a Douglas' Squirrel. There was another shot taken but is was worse with a good shot of the bark of the tree but a squirrel out of focus! The little critter was busy playing hide and seek!
There are surprises here and there with some bright colour. That's Whiteshell Bank in the image below. Its along the north shore of Burrard Inlet.
Once I got to Burns Point I took a number of photos of the high voltage lines crossing Burrard Inlet, of the inlet itself, of the trig point at Burns Point and so on. There was a chirping-like sound heard from the power lines running overhead perhaps due to the water below? I hope you've enjoyed the photos. Feel free to comment! - V
