The Stawesome Chief Sampler

On a whim I decided to call our exploratory trail run around the Stawamus Chief in Squamish the “Stawesome Chief Sampler” as it’s Awesome and samples some of the best trails in this small Provincial Park. We did a loop, checking out all 3 summits of “The Chief” as well as some lesser known viewpoints and airy hangouts. We don’t like to give too much away in our reports, so that you can discover...

Acorns, Part 3: The Stawamus Chief

<Acorns, Part 2: Starvation Lake “The Chief” is a large dome of granite that overlooks the main core of Squamish (official name: Stawamus Chief Mountain). If you’ve been through Squamish you’ve seen it. When we started meeting people in Squamish for the first time and told them we were getting into hiking almost everybody asked us “have you hiked the Chief?”. We did some research and found out it was a steep hike up the backside of...

Across the street from them was another house whose occupants did not care how their garden...

Girls’ Night Out: Part 2

< Girls’ Night Out: Part 1 The words that follow are by Kelly Fowler: We made camp in an outcropping of two huge granite boulders sitting ninety degrees to each other, nudging the base of a pine tree. One boulder had a curious indent in its shadow, enough for three wanderers to sleep like sardines. Solid to our left and backs, the path ran from above, down to the right and onwards through the rocks and scrub. It felt safe to...

Girls’ Night Out: Part 1

Prologue: Recently, when we published our post “3 Types of Fun” we asked our readers to shoot us a message if they had any Type 3 fun stories they wanted to share. We heard from a few people, most who’d already posted their stories online, but we heard from one who had yet to tell the story of her adventure gone awry to the world. We enjoyed her story so much that we offered to post it as our first guest post on our...
