Waking up to a sunrise is cool, but waking up to a sunrise in Vancouver is over the top. The city seems as though it is made of clean reflective glass that shines the sun back on the mountains that surround it. You know, if the sunrises are good, the sunsets are going to be just as cool. Later on that night I found they were.
If you are ever headed to Vancouver, I posted a quick travel guide that includes places to go, things to do, and an interactive photo-map. You can find it here.
