Vancouver

Some pics from Vancouver!!

As you can see it's a very "new" city -- tons (or should I say "tonnes") of new luxury high-rise developments with floor to ceiling glass windows...


The mountains are literally right there. Obscured by clouds in this pic, but in the winter they are snow-capped, and you can go skiing just a 15 min drive away.


The city also used to be known for its neon lights -- it used to be 2nd in neon-per-capita just after Shanghai!! (Sez the Lonely Planet -- where I get all my good travel info from.)


The fall leaves were stunning both on and off the trees.


The hiking was ridiculously gorgeous, and so nearby! And lily-pads always make me so happy!!


The natives were friendly...


...and so was the wildlife!


Stunning views of the city and snow-capped Mt. Baker at our destination!


An incredible city! But there are some things this place is just missing...


I *heart* y'all!
