Ok, so you're wondering what to see in Vancouver. Is it a clear day or evening? Do you wonder what Vancouver looks like from way up high but aren't interested in going up the Grouse Mountain Gondola? Are you unable to walk for those special views like me, an arthritis sufferer, whose now limited on my ability to walk to those great spots? Well, if you're driving,.....if not rent a car because, this view is worth every penny on a clear day. Take the # 1 Hywy, to the North Shore, or North Vancouver as it's known, heading north. Take a right at the Cypress Mountain turn off. It's long switchbacks gaining altitude quite rapidly. There's the look out on the right side of the road. About 3 km from the highway turnoff up the mountain. No walking required, just get out of the car, stretch, breathe, and drink up on a spectacular view. Bring your cameras. I like taking my pictures in panorama but I don't have the expensive panorama cameras. So, I take a series of photos.........have them digitally stitched at a professional photo shop, usually costing approximately $25.00 Canadian per/stitch. A single picture tells a very small story. A panoramic leaves people with the actual image you saw. Great for memories. For the young and vigorous, cycling up isn't as fun as coming down, on warm clear nights,......this is a very very romantic stop if you're touring through with that special loved one. Enjoy the beauty of Vancouver and the greater Vancouver regional district. The gulf islands and Vancouver island in the distance across Georgia Strait, all the way to the states.
