I liked the overall green tone, the way the thick branch (or the trunk!)on the foreground counterbalancing the masses on the right, and thepath in this picture!

I understand that's awell knowntrack for hikers fromthe linesbelow:

'British Columbia's longest irrigation channel, the Grey Canal, once sustained orchards and small agricultural plots throughout these valleys. The builders used open ditches formed concrete sections, trestled metal sheets, flumes, valve boxes and any means available to direct the flow of irrigation water from Aberdeen Lake along its 50 km course. Smaller sources of water, such as BX Creek were also connected to the canal to contribute to the volume of water needed for agriculture...'

:-)Thanks for your interest,Bahadir. The Grey Canal Trail is very popular with local hikers and walkers, andover the next few years it'll beextended to follow much of the length of the original irrigation canal. The trail offers something for everyone, from easy-walking level (more or less)to steep and difficult rock-strewn terrain.

The structure in the background isa concretevalve box, and you can also see remains of trestles on the ground that supported the flumes.

Thanks again! :bye:
