North Vancouver, B.C.

There are two municipalities in the Greater Vancouver region of British Columbia, that use the name North
Vancouver. These are: The City of North Vancouver ( about 45,000 residents ), and The District of North
Vancouver ( about 83,000 residents ). The City of North Vancouver is surrounded by the District of North
Vancouver on three sides.

Framed by the monumental North Shore Mountains, North Vancouver offers unprecedented access to nature
along with urban comforts. Imagine the thrill of hiking or mountain biking through parks laden with old-growth
rainforest. Ski on mountains showcased during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

ノースバンクーバー地区は北に北岸山脈(North Shore Mountains)と接している。この東から西に延びている山脈付近は
雨が多く、起伏が激しいため、急勾配で曲がりくねった道路になっている。山脈はハイキング、スキー、マウンテンバイクなど
人気の場所である。キャピラノ峡谷のキャピラノ吊橋は私的企業が保有し、多くの観光客を集めている。入場料は一人$32.95。
筆者は1974年の夏、対岸のバンクーバーの見える公園でバーベキュをして楽しんだ思い出があるが、春から秋にかけて、
ここはすばらしい自然環境に恵まれている。
