Howe Sound high line....


Sunday marked our one month anniversary living in Squamish so we made a point to start taking advantage of our new proximity to the goods! The ride I had in mind is visible from our front porch and only a ten minute drive away. It had been at least ten years since I rode high above Howe Sound. Britannia Beach holds fabled trails that involve theme parks, ridges and goats. Last time I was there we cheated by using a big metal bird as our access. This time we would be earning it....


I found a street sign that pointed us in the right direction....


The ride up was especially scenic....



                  
After a couple of hours we entered the ultra loamy forest. It was better than I remembered....



We feasted on salmon berries and surprisingly the blueberries were in full effect.

 

We found a nice establishment with a good view for lunch and ordered a few beers.



As soon as we dropped in the views opened up. Danielle found a nice spot to check on our house....


The kite boarders were enjoying the day....

 



The terrain was spectacular!

    

And so were the views....



The ride took us back into the rain forest and spit us out at Mountain Woman Burger for dinner! Welcome to Squamish....
