The western part of the mountain has plenty of activity in the winter with snowboarding as just one example. In summer there is plenty of other activity such as picnics, people admiring the flowers in the rosegarden or just taking in the scenery, which is reason enough to visit the mountain. Then the day I went to visit in early February I stayed late to see the sunset and to see the moon coming up from the east plus take in the sight of two bald eagles soaring overhead. I have seen 13 bald eagles so far this year, most of them at Burnaby Mountain with five being the most I've seen at one time!
Part of Kamui Mintara at sunset (Feb) can be seen in the photo above and the series of plaques in front of the sculptures are pictured below. The plaques tell the story behind the symbolism of the work and the connection between the Ainu of Japan and the Gods that brought them into being. So a question comes to mind: Who were these "Gods" and where did the Ainu come from originally??? Decide for yourself!
