Sea-to-Sky Highway

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 19 August 2013 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Highway 99, also known as the Sea to Sky Highway, the Squamish Highway, Route 99, or Whistler Highway, is the major north-south artery running through the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia from the U.S. border, up Howe Sound through the Sea to Sky Country to Lillooet, and connecting to Highway 97 just north of Cache Creek.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

A breathtaking landscape and great engineering feat. The light on the boat in the foreground gives excellent sense of scale as well.

This is magnificent, the depth of the darks are pure magic on that water, and the sun
seems to provide a light that goes all the way to that magic Kingdom, where Samuel
Clemons may just be on that boat, 5 *****'s !~

Wow, quite a different view than one taken from the highway itself, with a high rock wall much of the way to Squamish on the inland side.
I like the light you captured on the ferry and through the center of the image.

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thank you very much Judy! Yes, the view from the water is strikingly different! ;-)
