Picture of the Day - September 14, 2009

Burnaby Mountain, Indian Arm & Burrard Inlet

A striking photo of Burnaby Mountain and Indian Arm.

I have published a number of images featuring the striking beauty of Canada in the past, and today we have yet another one thanks to photographer Ursula Hunter. In the distance stands Burnaby Mountain, a 1,214 foot forested mountain located right in the city of Burnaby, British Columbia.

The valley containing the narrow body of water directly in front of and to the right of Burnaby Mountain is a glacial fjord known as Indian Arm. Since it was formed during the last Ice Age, Indian Arm is relatively young in comparison to the entire span of our planet's geological history. The larger body of water in the foreground is scenic Burrard Inlet.

    I love my native Canada and the gorgeous scenery that seems to be pretty much everywhere you look up there. I recommend that anyone who has never been there go at least once in their lifetime. I've been back several times over the years and I plan to back again real soon.
