Don’t Skip Over Squamish, B.C.

The perfect pitstop between Vancouver and Whistler is the sweet little town of Squamish. It came to life during construction of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway in the early 1900s. Forestry and logging were the major industries in those days. There was a bit of mining there too, but much of that production has ceased. Now Squamish serves as a cheaper home to residents from Vancouver and Whistler try to escape rising costs of living. However, those industrial roots are still very present today. Exploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayExploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayThe pictures below are from Porteau Cove Provincial Park. It’s the perfect spot to camp or fish. Exploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayExploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayExploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayExploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayExploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayExploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayExploring Squamish / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez Conway
