After having seen the bridge, I proceeded to the starting point for the skylift up to Grouse Mountain. I first made an attempt at Grouse Grind, a popular trail that is less than 3 km long, but with an ascent of 853 m. However, I gave it up after some quarter of the way. Suffering from a cold, I decided that it was too much of a strain for the day. Instead I took the skylift up to the mountain. But my hopes for a nice mountain walk were spoiled. There was snow up there, yuk! You can see Vancouver in the background.
