Wandering West Beach

West Beach White Rock
Looking Eastward

Down for walks along West Beach in White Rock especially in the winter when there are no crowds. A place to enjoy the outdoors in peace. Mount Baker looming in the background.


One Step at a Time

Stawamus Chief
Stairway to Heaven

No. Not the one by Led Zeppelin but this stairway does take you part of the way to the summit of Stawamus Chief. While the stairs are only a small part of the hike, there is still a prolific number of treads to negotiate.

The Chief

One of my favorite hikes which we try to get in once a year. Since we’re not rock climbers, going up the face is not an option but there is a steep hike up the backside which gets you to the top. This photo was taken from the north summit looking down to the somewhat lower south summit. If you ever find yourself passing through Squamish why not stop by and give it a try.
