    No, that's at Grouse Mountain, we did Cypress mountain. My son has done the grind in 50 minutes, me never.

    Here's a view from the top. 1,224 metres. My body still hurts.

  5. Love the second conversion! And all the detail.
    Here is where metric lets you down: 4015 feet sounds so much more impressive :rolleyes: 
     
  6. That first shot is excellent!

  9. The ship really makes the first photo. My wife and I will take a day trip or two to Vancouver in the spring. Though we like hiking, 4015 feet is quite a bit too much for us. I do know that if we did the hike, we would do it in record time...for the longest time ever recorded.

    Making an excellent series, West!
    Beautiful processing, kind of a vintage look.
     
  13. For our next visit north of the border ... is there a road to this vantage point? ;)

    Sadly NO. It's a 2 1/2 hour death hike up a mountain (each way) The trail is poor with lots of slippery tree roots, rock and mud. You can drive up to the Cypress lookout which is about 1/4 way up (first photo)
     
  16. Thanks ... I'll definitely give that a try next time we're up there!!

  17. Great set West. I love them all. Also congrats for your effort.
