Squamish is a town north of Vancouver, in British Columbia, Canada. It's at the northern tip of the island-dotted Howe Sound, and surrounded by mountains like the Stawamus Chief, a huge granite monolith. The Sea to Sky Gondola has views of the sound and nearby Shannon Falls, a towering waterfall cascading down a series of cliffs.
We drove from San Francisco to Squamish in 17 hours, the original plan was to stop around Seattle, but when we got that fare we decided to just keep going. For a long time we have wanted to go up north to visit our good danish friends who moved there 3 years ago.
We did a couple of great hike, with breathtaking views, which is something you are surrounded by in Squamish. Everywhere you look is stunning, and after you get to jump in nice cooling water.
Down by the waterfront where all the timber are being stored, we were so lucky to see a groupe of natives (Skwxwu7mesh). They where working with the tree bark, softening it up, so they could use if for making basketes. To me it is nice to know that all the parts of the tree is being used.
