If you watched the Vancouver Olympics, you may remember seeing a montage someone put together showing amazing scenes from Vancouver and the surrounding countryside. Mountaintop vistas, sparkling water, happy people, all in one image after another. I’ve been to Vancouver before and I enjoyed my visit, but I don’t usually feel a burning drive to see it again. Well, after watching that clip during the opening ceremonies, I was all geared up to throw the hubs and the offspring in the car and hightail it north!
This video put together by the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau evokes similar feelings in me about my own backyard. I forget, driving around our community as I do, that it really is a pretty area. I mean, we have three rivers that come together here. That alone makes for some spectacular scenery, but combine our gently rolling hills covered in grape vines and steep bluff faces with the waterways, and we find we really do live in a gorgeous area.
Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments…
Great post and video! Having lived in some ugly places, (Saginaw, MI, Hobbs, NM) and beautiful places, (Savannah, GA, Wappingers Falls, NY) the Tri-Cities is an interesting change and beautiful in a way that’s totally different from “out east”.
