Summer is just a day away and with the heat already causing us to slather sunscreen on our normally Gore-Tex-covered skin, Vancouverites are looking for ways to cool off. With cottonwood fluff in the air, and the cedars emitting their aromas that smell like home in the PNW, our local Metro Vancouver lakes make for some lovely, scenic day trip destinations. Enjoy a picnic, paddle a canoe, build sandcastles with the kids, take a hike, and definitely cool off in the waters where swimming is available.
Here is a roundup of our beautiful local lakes, thanks to those who have shared their photos with the Miss604 Flickr Pool and the #Photos604 tag on Instagram:
