Vancouver under fog


Vancouver under fog, originally uploaded by John Biehler.

Oh blog, I've neglected you so! It's because it's December. It's because I'm working against the clock at work on some major projects (with tight deadlines) and when I get home I'm exhausted or I'm out at some Christmas function or roaming Robson Street or Richmond Centre Christmas shopping. Or I'm at Section 3 or at an all-nighter Guitar Hero party with friends. Usually it's a combination of all 6.

Regardless, I had to share John Biehler's photo of the fog over Vancouver this morning. It was taken from my favourite Vancouver lookout at Cypress Mountain. Just drive your car half way up along Cypress Bowl Rd...

... or live vicariously through Google Street View!

Ive been meaning to go up there. Is that the same "Cypress" where you can go snowboarding, etc.?

It is a great photo! And yes, it's the same Cypress where you can go snowboarding. Cypress Bowl Road is the road you'd drive to get to Cypress Mountain's ski/snowboard runs... which is lots of fun! :) (Not that I've actually done that since I was 16 or so!)

The fog is definitely spectacular from the top of a mountain. I work up at Grouse Mountain and the view from there is similarly awesome! Best wishes for the Christmas and holiday season Robyn!

Thanks Vancouver Guy! I'll be sure to check out your blog.

Merry Christmas Rachel! You're lucky that you get to experience that view on a regular basis.

Merry Christmas to you Ron!
