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.
I would rather be on my way to the summit.
An interesting bridge crossing the creek on the way up to Rainbow Lake near Whistler BC. While the platforms and stairs leading onto the bridge have been pushed around by yearly runoffs, the a-frame system keeps the main plank crossing intact.
Not the first time time being caught in a sudden mountain storm. Rather than zero in on anything, I kept the lens away from the trees and let the camera focus wherever it decided which left the branches swirling in a foggy state.
Not marked as such but a danger sign could be attached to this paragliding platform on the top of Bear Mountain near Harrison Hot Springs. Jump off the far side and it’s 1100 metres down to the valley floor.
Ain’t travel great. Besides getting to visit the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey near Barcelona, we also got to wander around another mountain.
Sometimes looking at rocks can be the same as watching clouds to try and see shapes. On the far right end I choose to see a button eye, pointy nose and a sad downward shaped mouth. By the way, most of the rocks I’ve met are pretty dense.
Cypress Mountain Ski Area was the venue for the Freestyle Skiing and Snowboarding events of the 2010 Winter Olympics. As a legacy I guess the green rings will remain forever.
Only an 1100 metre elevation gain and scramble until you’re atop Yak. From there the 360° view is all mountains, all the time; but if you squint carefully you might be able to pick out your vehicle parked at the maintenance area near the Coquihalla Summit.
