We were very lucky to have sunshine and blue sky & no wind. We were able to see many of the Gulf islands and Vancouver Island from our view point. The only concern was the terrible condition of the pot holed road up to the parking lot.

It was definitely worth going to see this, but it's a long and bumpy drive. If it is not a nice day, I wouldn't recommend going. And be sure to bring a toque and gloves if it's windy. We almost were blown off the top.

Wow, felt like we were on top of the world! We drove to the top with friends and were amazed at the wonderful view - the boats below looked like specs...

We took a picnic with some wine we bought at a local winery. You can't beat the view. The road about half way gets a little rough and i would not recommend going in bad weather.
