Eric and I toured the west of Canada in august/september of 2001. We spent about two weeks camping and hiking in the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks of Banff, Jasper, Yoho, and Kootenay. We did not visit Mount Revelstoke & Glacier.

Apart from the Rockies, we also spent time on Vancouver Island, and in Calgary, Vancouver, and the Kootenays and Okanagan regions.

Vancouver by night .

One of the best ways to get a good look at all of Vancouver is by taking a trip up to the Lookout at the top of the Harbour Centre Tower. Your ticket is valid all day, so make sure you return around sunset, to see Vancouver by night! This tower is found close to the Harbour, where luxury cruise ships from all over the world make a quick stop. The photograph below shows the Harbour, with a cruise ship, from the Tower.

We had great weather in Vancouver, and spent most of the time walking up and down the streets, getting a good look at the city. One of the areas that's definitely worth a visit is Chinatown. As I looked at the crates of live crabs and heard Chinese all around me, I could easily have forgotten I was in Canada!

If you're tired of walking around, take the aquabus! It's a small boat that takes you to a number of stops along the south of Vancouver's downtown. Very relaxing! One of the aquabus stops is at Granville Island, which has a huge produce market.
