Roadtrip to Vancouver Island: Day Five in Short

04/06/2018

  • Squamish –> Vancouver –> Nanaimo
  • Moa started the day with some climbing in Murrin Provinical Park.
  • We drove to Vancouver!
  • We accidentally drove into the city centre of Vancouver.
  • Hung out in beautiful Stanley Park.
  • Visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
  • Treetop Adventure was better than the bridge!
  • Left Capilano at around 7 and made the ferry to Nanaimo that left at 7:40.
  • Looked for Spruston Staging Area to camp overnight but road was closed so we had to find a random parking lot to sleep in. Oh well.

  • Full day in Squamish!
  • We decided to hike the Stawamus Chief. WARNING: SUPER STEEP HIKE! We made it to the second peak. The view was awesome!
  • The Chief hike makes you super gross and sweaty so we had a swim in Browning Lake afterwards.
  • Well deserved Boston Pizza time!!!
  • Spent all evening in Starbucks just charging things, going through pictures and connecting to the “world wide web”.
  • Staff started giving us free samples of everything. Please note that the SERIOUSLY STRAWBERRY drink is delicious.
  • We live in Starbucks now.
