Incredible. Simply incredible. So overwhelmingly beautiful in parts. Getting to Squamish (first 65km) involved a bunch of ups and downs, but after that it was grueling. Like almost 20km of sustained climbing. Then lots of ups, and some downs.

Right now we’re staying with a lady named Sara. Her place is ridiculously small and she’s a huge environmental activist. Pretty cool. She is also really trustworthy, leaving us in her place while she went out. Easy day tomorrow; looking forward to it [oh how I was wrong. So very, very wrong].
