Thanks to Tourism Squamish Josh and I had one of the ultimate buddy experiences ever. I’ll admit, we were nervous. Fear of flying in a normal size plane is very common. The Cessna 172 plane we got into is a small plane that fits maybe 4 people. Turns out we had nothing to worry about. Our pilot was amazing. Our ride was smoother than a car ride.
See the picture above? That’s the Stawamus Chief – one of the most gorgeous and gratifying hikes you can do in BC. The views from the top of the Chief are amazing. Well, Josh and I got to see a more magnificent view thanks to Sea to Sky Air. And here’s just a random fact thrown in for flavour: Did you know that the Chief is the world’s second largest granite outcrop? Well, now you know.
This is the City of Squamish. Ahead is Howe Sound. I know that because our pilot Peter told us. Our pilot was awesome. He was not only great at putting us at ease, but he knows the area inside and out.
Josh and I really enjoyed our adventure. This is definitely an experience you need to share with someone.
