Grouse Mountain - North Vancouver, BC (Part 1)

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Vancouver photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 9 photos, use this link.

Today I will start my photos from Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver, BC, Canada. Grouse Mountain is a ski resort in North Vancouver, that is also open as a tourist attraction when there is no snow. When there is now snow, they have several shows, a wildlife conservation habitat, and a wind energy display called "Eye of the Wind" for tourists to observe.
