You can use the google link to start "driving" around and check out the views.
Most of my work is in Terrace BC and no shortage of views...
First pic is looking down on Terrace. Second pic is my view mowing looking at that mountain from the valley
Better view from google maps street view...

Now the 3rd picture I HAD to stop mowing and take that pic...not to often do I see the lake that flat calm....was Just so beautiful
4th picture is looking down on said lake.
Gawd I just Love this area .......compared to the flat lands of Ontario(So glad to have escaped that madness)

Holy crap... those places are beautiful. I have friends who fly out to Whistler every few years to go skiing. Around here the "mountains" don't get over about a mile in elevation. I've always wanted to head out west and see some real elevation. Those are awesome!

I honestly believe everyone in my family has made a 2 week pilgrimage out west but me... The corn fields of Indiana is as far west as I've made it. Now I've been to pretty much every po-dank down and city from Maine to Florida and in-between, but I just can't get out west.

Don't feel bad. Go to asia, you will see much much more there than if you travel anywhere in the states.

Like others, I don't take a lot of pics.

I work at a few places, in this lake area.




A multi-use trail of peace and serenity.


At a different lake. Front:
