Final Time

Hop, Skip and a Jump

Sad to see the WPC come to an end. Reusing the photo I used for “Leapfrogging into the Distance’ which was my post in response to ‘Depth’. I’ve always considered it quite magical to hike up mountains surrounded by clouds, until you break out to the gorgeous views with only whiteness below. Looking forward to today’s posts.


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.
