Up Grouse again


in Daily updates, The outdoors

Today marked the second time in three days when I have made the snowy trek up Grouse Mountain with my father. Today’s venture benefitted from three excellent additions: the presence of my friend Jonathan and post-hike beer and nachos. Vancouverites are lucky to have the option of spending an hour rapidly gaining altitude by hand and foot, only to walk into a nice restaurant and begin feasting on a considerable heap of cheese-chip-vegetable synergy.

Residents of Vancouver should consider making the climb during the next few days. You need to walk past the signs advertising that the trail is closed and then eastward around the fence. I wouldn’t recommend doing it alone or after dark, but it is quite safe and very beautiful in the snow.

I have never done the hike in winter. Entries like this make me wish I was not 4 hours away from Vancouver for the few days that you are. No matter, I will be back in the city soon enough.
