How does anyone in downtown Vancouver know it’s 12pm?

Look at their watch? That’s too easy …

A visual tour of the local hills in Vancouver

Duration: 1 minute 55 seconds.

View from Deer Lake, Burnaby, BC, Canada – 1300h PST (2100h UTC), on Wednesday, January 11, 2012.

Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain, and Mount Seymour are each at an altitude of about 4000 feet (1200 metres). The Lions are a little higher, topping out at about 4200 feet (1300 metres). Most residents refer to these as the “local hills”, which I’ve known since I was a boy. Burnaby Mountain on which the main campus of Simon Fraser University resides is a mere 1200 feet (a little under 400 metres) in height.
