Waterfalls in Western Pinecone Burke

CK Wright Photo Trips

On the western edge of Pinecone Burke Provincial Park, uphill from the Coquitlam River, are numerous waterfalls and cascades.  Some are named, such as Sawblade Falls and Woodland Falls, while most are unnamed.  Saturday morning was overcast which is always best for photographing the brightly toned mountain streams.  I headed out early to have enough time to explore this area before the rain …
