Naturally beautiful Squamish

The Stawamus Chief dominates the Squamish landscape. It’s popular with climbers and is also the nesting ground for peregrine falcons. (Just south of town we see a gondola is a new attraction. On this busy tourist day, we don’t take it.)

Railway tracks run along the drive to the Squamish Terminals. Beyond the tracks is a vast tract of marsh, alive on Saturday with ducks and geese.
