Dawson Creek, Sightseeing Tours

Our flight left Dawson Creek on a very cold and clear day in early winter. There were a couple of inches of snow on the ground.
For the most of the flight, we saw snow covered mountains. As we got closer to Greater Vancouver, the snow thinned and the mountains were green.
The skies in Vancouver were clear and our flight took us on a great sight seeing tour.
From our chairs in the sky, we saw the ocean, Vancouver Island and big empty cargo ships sitting in the Burrard Inlet, the Lions Gate Bridge with 2 lanes of traffic going one way and one going the other. We saw the seawall and industrial parks and the skyscrapers of downtown Vancouver.
We really noticed the miles and miles of urban sprawl that stretched farther than our eyes could see.
Our plane landed after an hour and twenty minutes in the air and we disembarked into pleasant weather and enjoyed a city weekend in a beautiful city.
