wanderin stanley park (vancouver, part trois).

monday.

.

continuing my week and a bit in vancouver, one of my main goals for the week was to spend a day wandering all the way around stanley park.  it’s such a beautiful park located right downtown, with a combination of tourist spots, hiking trails through the forest, and the active running and biking trail around the perimeter.  I decided to try to touch on a bit of them all.

so we hit the road…
