It's good to be home. I took advantage of the beautiful weather yesterday afternoon and joined NB&JB for a hike up Mount Seymour. It was just what I needed after a long flight and days without any serious exercise. After a rocky start (about 750 m up a ski hill littered with serious rocks) we hit the trail and hiked to the second pump in about 2 hours. The view from the summit was stunning. To one side we could see the Burrard Inlet with Kitsilano in the background and the Lions Gate Bridge in the foreground. Looking out the other way we could see the Indian Arm and the mountains to the North. Despite our grumbling about the effort required to make it to the Second Pump it was definitely worth it.

By the way, that isn't a giant sun on the top right hand corner, it would be John's thumb, just too lazy to clean up the picture tonight.

I love it! I've checked and there are no penguins but there are apparently huge fish in Great Bear Lake.
