Exploring Sqaumish, British Columbia

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. The Britannia Mine Museum has underground train tours. Bike trails criss-cross the area.

Driving to Squamish from Whistler is about 45 minute drive, the beauty along the way makes the drive cake.
So excited we get to ride a gondola! All of them were closed in Whistler for the season.

Sea to Sky Gondala

We finally made to to the Sea to Sky! This place is an awesome dramatic gondola over Howe Sound mountains, also has multiple cafes, food trucks, bars, hiking trails, lodges, and a super sweet suspension bridge! They even had gluten free Whistler beer which was amazing, I’d order it by the case if I could.

Make sure you don’t need anything from Base Camp Cafe! Lower Ground Cafe.
Get ready to load up in your Gondola!

Had to throw out like an 1800’s vibe photo to give it a lift.
I mean you have to chug a beer wrapped in a cooling towel at the top no? Oh I thought you did. King of the Castle.

Shannon Falls

Shannon Falls is located pretty much next door to the Sea to Sky Gondolas so we had to check it out. Little history: Shannon Falls Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada.The park covers an area of (210 acres). The main point of interest is Shannon Falls, the third highest waterfall in BC, where water falls from a height of (1,099 ft). The falls are named after a William Shannon who first settled the property in 1889 and made bricks in the area. The park also protects the surrounding area on the north-east shore of the Howe Sound. The falls and adjoining woods are commonly used in television and film production.

You could see this place from the highway, such beauty, such amazement, such wow, wow.

White Water River Rafting

Ok a little bit of a lie, more like TripAdvisor White Water River Sunset Chillin adventure. Found this for about $300 for the 4 of us where some local stoners just take you down the river in a raft and show you the sunset, seals, mountains and a little bit of history. They also bring in the apple champagne and cheese & crackers kit! Totally worth doing. It was smooth, chill, and very scenic.

No we didn’t take this bus, but they also do hardcore river rafting which is pretty dope.
