It was fine from morning today and I visited Stanley Park by bicycle after a long break. It was apparently brighter in the park, but it was not that this park was in the bright situation. The fallen woods cannot create shadow and their sections are yellowish. That is the reason for the brightness of the park. The staff of the park board were doing recovering work here and there; cutting the broken trees into some pieces and organizing them, but they looked too small in number to cover whole the damaged area in the park. It will take decades for the complete recovery in this pace. I'm not sure whether they don't have enough budget or donations, or it is their policy that they leave the forest to the natural recovery. All I can say from a foreigner's point of view is that Vancouver is less attractive with this damaged Stanley Park. It is often said that Tokyo became uglier around 1964 when the Olympic Games were held; lots of buildings and roads were built without any definite plan and it was when the Metropolitan Highway, the most horrible building in Tokyo, was drawn all over the city. I never hope Vancouver changes into a unattractive city just like Tokyo.
