In 1913 flags flew at half mast the day Mohawk poet & stage performer E. Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake) died in Vancouver’s West End. Johnson loved, routinely visited and wrote about Stanley Park. This tour will follow the trails she walked, stroll through the “Cathedral Trees” from her “The Lure of Stanley Park” story, walk the shores where she paddled her canoe, and visit the body of water she named Lost Lagoon. Also hear about other park themes from Johnson’s best selling 1912 “Legends of Vancouver” book, like Deadman’s Island and Siwash Rock. Includes rare historical photographs relating to E.P.J.
Departs from & returns to the Lost Lagoon viewing plaza overlooking the lagoon at the foot of Alberni Street.
