Sept. 15, 2016 – For me, crossing the border from the USA to Canada always involved crossing a lake or river, because I’ve always done it from Michigan or points East. And the border with Mexico, where I’ve crossed it, always had a river and/or a wall, or at least a big fence.
So driving along the US-Canada border outside of Vancouver and seeing this was quite a surprise to me.
Vancouver area addresses are easy to find because of the road numbering system. Larra lives at 193xx 66 Ave, which means she’s near the intersection of 193rd Street and 66th Avenue. Notice that there’s no North, South, East or West to the address? I found out why today: The road along the US-Canada border in this area is Zero Avenue.
Below, we’re at the intersection of 256 St. and 0 Ave, and the silver pylon near the center of the photo is the US-Canada border marker.
