 icon-camera About Grouse Mountain with Amazing Sight Photography.

It is a 1231m mountain which is in North Vancouver (near from the down town). In the winter, people have fun for winter sports, and in the summer people have fun for hiking.

The sight from the top was the best amazing sight in Vancouver since I’v been here so far now. 😀 I recommend you go to the top around 4 & 5 pm, because at the time is still bright, and you also can see sunset soon. The sunset was just EPIC.

It was a challenging one for me. Sooo many steps for 1hour&half! But in the end, I felt I chosen totally a great way..!

IMG_0304When I saw the signal saying “1/4 MARK”, I was like “Oh no!! man! noo! still 1/4!?? NO! Please! No more steps!” haha, and I took a rest. When I was taking a rest, it was funny to see that some people had the similar reactions as mine. haha

When you see the signal “3/4 MARK”, you are almost there.

Everyone was sweat and tired and they breath like people do running, and when they looked each other, they couldn’t say “Hi” or “Hello”, but instead of that they smile and laugh. I knew what they meant, it was like “It’s very heavy! hey! Oh man! haha”.

Finally, achieved to be on the top!
The sense of achievement was great!
The sight was amazing!

Restaurant / Grouse Mountain, Vancouver, BC

IMGP3856
There are some cafes and restaurants from cheap one to high class one.
If you need an energy, just charge it!
Eating and Drinking at a place that you can see the outside sight, should be your great moment in your life. I just drunk a cup of hot chocolate, it was just so good.
I think I will never forget the great taste and the moment.

Special Restaurant Info/ Grouse Mountain, Vancouver, BC

Name of Restaurant: Observatory Restaurant.

Place: on the top plateau.

Open: 5PM to 10PM

If you book the table for dinner, you need to order main menu ($39) at least, but it is including Skyride free tickets! So, it will be cheaper than just buying the Skyride tickets, and you can eat good classic food. You can tell your name at the Skyride platform, then you will get the free tickets. If you think to have dinner on the top, you should book it.
