hiking adventure – stawamus chief

wouldn’t be making good use of my summer time and the abundance of sunshine vancouver has to offer if i wasn’t out doing summery things. wouldn’t want to let another summer go by without having done the stawamus chief, so i was going all out this weekend. no taking it easy even though its my first time, might as well get my money’s worth by doing all three peaks in one go. the beginning leading up to the trail split felt like an endless climb of stairscases and it probably was to a certain degree, by the end i climbed well over two hundred flights of stairs. really enjoyed the chains and ladder part and would have had better use of my spiderman skills if people in front of me were mildly faster. downhill portion was a knee buster for my bad knees, and they didn’t stop short of letting me know. part of the fun is to pose for obligatory selfies at every peak, and doing many stupid things along the way. this was an eye opener to do longer and more intermediate terrains, it was definitely another worthwhile hike. looking forward to doing one more long one before summer begins to wind down

posing at peak two cause i am asian. all hiked out and legs ready to give in after completing a tiring three peak hike that took just over five hours. it was endless climbing of a natural stair master of over two hundred flights of stairs but in the end the breathtaking view made it all worthwhile. second peak stood out for me because the obstacles and the awesome view really capped it off. it was like parkour, i always knew had a little spiderman in me
