Pitt-Addington Marsh was by Pitt Lake. The signage of this Pitt Meadows location was poor and grasses bent over the narrow neglected path, but the day was perfect and the scenery spectacular.
Two bird watching towers sat on opposite sides of the marsh for enthusiasts. A photographer hunched in the grasses before a mating pair perched in their nest atop a wooden pole. I was more interested in lily pads, dragonflies, the shimmering waters and the hills that surrounded the reserve.
When I accidently bumped against dried lupine seed pots I jumped in fear. They sounded just like a rattle snake!
