Biking near Stanley Park, I stopped for a break and took a few shots of the beach on the south side of downtown. Surlac leans to on the metal contraption, or artwork, or whatever it may be called.
After this I grabbed some noodles, home made and totally awesome. While there I also had a tea while sitting outside, Surlac in the distance.
Next up I rode up on the Brurrard Bridge and got a shot of the shipping in the waterway.
A little further along I found a giant bird!!
Stopping on the Viaduct to get some pictures.
note, I am in the bikeway, where I’ve stopped and have set my bike in the picture. I’m stepping over into the pedestrian sidewalk on the bridge, and the cars go way over there beyond the concrete barriers. A TRULY separated bikeway. Vancouver might not have the bike culture in Portland, but it absolutely is working toward being as world class as Amsterdam is! It’s truly impressive what they’ve done in a mere 2-3 years! Vancouver is one of my favorite cities to visit in North America hands down.
Looking into the city from my first stop on the Viaduct I took a few shots, here’s one of the one’s that turned out pretty good. Completely unedited.
…and then another…
…and looking the complete other way I saw two cyclists riding up with the Skytrain heading toward us in the background.
Last but not least, one of the venerable trolley buses of Translink.
A few shots from my recent trip to Vancouver.

Today is Friday, the last day of the engineering meetup I came to Denver for, but the first day of city, coffee, transit explorations and finding my egress point from Denver, Amtrak. Currently Amtrak isn’t using Denver’s grand Union Station because it is being worked on and renovated for multiple rail lines, transit connections and other things as Denver’s upcoming intermodal hub. The station is without doubt absolutely beautiful. Here’s a photo of it with the Oxford Hotel sign in the forefront, my residence while staying in Denver this week.
I made a short video of my expedition to find the Amtrak Station.
Stay tune, I’ll have more videos, photos and information on Denver real soon. It’s a beautiful city with a lot of upcoming potential. The downtown is booming, even when it’s freezing. Overall I’ve been impressed. You’ll be hearing more about Denver here on the Transit Sleuth real soon.

…and now for a few transit shots.

…and ending with one final city shot.
