Vancouver has many views worth seeing. Some of the best are from our SkyTrain rapid transit system.

While others might prefer looking south between Edmonds and 22nd Street stations, across the Fraser River delta to Georgia Strait, and beyond to the United States, I'm partial to the green swath of East Vancouver, with the (now still snowy) North Shore mountains behind it, in the short stretch of track between Nanaimo and Broadway stations, where the tracks curve southeast to northwest around Trout Lake:


There, the city is framed by the mountains, but not overwhelmed by them. It's urban, yet lush, and on a sunny day, it makes me happy.

What's your favourite view of Vancouver, or of the place where you live? Leave a comment if you like, and link to a photo (yours or another's) if you can.
