Canada Trip Day 5: Cypress Provincial Park & Foggy Cypress Mountain

17 June 2010 - The temperature was dropping as we were heading back to Vancouver. We stopped by Cypress Provincial Park to take some nice photos of Vancouver city. The view from the park was amazing as Howe Sound is located just right beside it.

My uncle, perhaps seeing how overly excited we were each time we made a photo stop, decided to take us to see Cypress Mountain which is located in West Vancouver and was a venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics for freestyle skiing and snowboarding. The area was fog-covered when we arrived which left us a little disappointed, but still excited because we've never experienced such heavy fog conditions where visibility is extremely low.
