a Friday drive




Yesterday, on a spur-of-the-moment decision we decided to go for a ‘Sunday drive’ along the stunning Sea-to-Sky Highway from Vancouver to Whistler. As many know, I love rocks and this highway has numerous massive walls of cut rock with fascinating sculptural faces and colour variations, often where one cannot not stop for photos. The ones above were taken from the parking lot near Brandywine Falls.

Below is a view of the Stawamus Chief rock near Squamish, a very popular spot for rock face climbers. Though we’ve seen this many times, for the first time I noticed the face of it had an image that looked to me like a samurai, with a fierce expression, arms outstretched in battle form and robe waving behind.
