Walking on Sunshine

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 26 July 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

And don't it feel good!

That right there is the "viewing" rock which is to the right of the lions in Wednesday's image. The lions our at our backs and we are looking towards Unnecessary Mountain and Howe Sound beyond. Most people stand on that rock and feel invincible. I felt queasy and vulnerable, and far more invincible with one foot on it and the other beside. Hmmm...

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

As Steven says, top of the world, you must have had a great sense of achievement. Lovin' the concept of someone naming a mountain "Unnecessary Mountain"!

26 Jul 2013 12:23pm

@CElliottUK: Thanks... and I love the name, too.... I want to climb it too one day soon. When I do I'll be sure to post pics and look into how it got it's name

Abena from Illinois, United States

I'm walking on sunshine wooooa :-) you remind me of my last hike where a couple of times I pondered how easily one could get caught dangling off the edge, not a good feeling...but at the top (in the middle) I'm sure it felt like an achievement. haha I love your text below, I also like how he does look pretty invincible up there.

26 Jul 2013 4:09pm

@Abena: Did you take pics on your last hike :-) He loved standing on the edge. I think I preferred the journey to get there

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Abena from Illinois, United States

Don't think I'd take my camera along with me...at least not with steep edges around (for a rather 'trivial' reason-I don't trust myself not to drop it...though you give me courage to take it along next time :-))
