I think the last time we went to Canada we visited Burnaby park, where there were lots of JapaneseTotem poles and it overlooked the river..so very beautiful..

Hi Joan! This one is actually a little different... it's called Skunk Cabbage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Skunk_Cabbage

I live very close to the park you visited. Burnaby Mountain Park has that beautiful view over downtown Vancouver. This lake is down at the base of the mountain to the south. I'm glad you came over to visit!
