Traveling on the Sea to Sky Highway, from North Vancouver to Whistler, about the half-way point is the town of Squamish. This is where we’ve chosen to take our little get-away.
We’ve been here before, but it’s been many years, so it’s almost like visiting it for the first time. And there are new things to see and do since our last visit.
On some previous visits, we took the steam train Royal Hudson, which is now decommissioned and on display at the West Coast Railway Heritage Park. Our visit there brought back many memories
According to one local shop-owner, the word Squamish means Mother Wind, and as we strolled the streets and found an out-door restaurant, we appreciated the cooling effect of that wind in the heat of the day.
I have to admit that riding gondolas is not my favorite thing to do, so I made sure I looked up not down both ways. But once we were at the top, and standing on a solid platform, I had no trouble enjoying the views
I braved the suspension bridge
and then enjoyed our strolls (some climbing on the one path) through the forests. We found possibly the most peaceful place on earth
Afterward, we went down the road a bit to Shannon Falls
All in all a wonderful day in the beauty of this world God made
Happy touring Blessings, Peg
