Lower Mainland - Fraser Valley

British Columbia, Canada

Mountains and views

The combination of mountains and water (coastal and inland) is what has the greatest impact on most visitors to this area. The mountains and their proximity to urban areas create the dominant visual influence on visitors and residents. On the north side of the Fraser Valley is a range of mountains that extend from West Vancouver at the western end all the way to Hope in the East. Even from the canadian border with the US the mountains form a backdrop.(see No.18). The mountains on the southern side of the valley begin just south of Abbotsford and east of the Sumas Prairie. Here are images of most of the northern side.
