Possible captions for this photo could be "Walking on Top of the World", "Jumping for Joy", "Celebrating Nature", "Up Upon High". What was actually being said at the time was more along the lines of, "Oh shoot! Ok, try it again. Ready? On the count of 3. One, two, THREE!"
These mountains are part of the Golden Ears Provincial Park north of Maple Ridge. I'm not sure if these peaks themselves compose Golden Ears, but they look striking and impressive enough to have been the source of the namesake. Then again, generally any mountain range around here is impressive enough to knock your socks off.
I was somewhat disappointed after I got home and watched this video I took of Okanagan Lake because I hadn't spent the time to take a nice photo. It was quite picturesque.
This dock in Peachland reflects a very serene scene. In summertime it's the exact opposite; laden with bodies, you'll barely be able to see the dock, or Okanagan Lake for that matter, because of the popularity among locals and tourists alike.
The sun sets in the West, and the West Coast is a great place to be if you're a fan of catching glimpses of spectacular colour combinations. They come in all shapes and colours, with accessories too like a reflective cloud seen here.
I imagine this ski hill in Whistler looks very different in the winter. In fact, I don't think you'd be able to see the hill as it would be teeming with people. If you aren't a skier then visit Whistler during the summer - it's probably the most pristine part of Canada, your allergies will disappear while there due to the lack of pollutants, and the money that was dumped into the town's infrastructure for the 2010 Winter Olympics helped things along in spades. As some tourists pointed out from Perth, Australia: "Whistler reminds me of Disneyland... you know, how everything is just so perfect looking. We came here after visiting Vancouver and thought that was absolutely beautiful, then we came here and it's even nicer! Bloody hell!"
We certainly enjoy the stark differences that all four seasons affords us in BC.
For example, contrast the surroundings of Stave Lake in the summer on a calm and peaceful day....
with what the surroundings of Stave Lake can be in the winter. Highlight is the "open the door" part at the end. And you thought your car was dirty....
