Kelowna Road Trip Day 3: Kelowna – Coquitlam – Vancouver

Featured image: Mountain view on our way back from Kelowna. Last day in Kelowna was pretty much a travel day for us.

Vancouver, BC, Canada: Hiking the Chief

Photo of the day: The view from the Stawamus Chief.

It is classified as an “intermediate” hike, but it can definitely feel challenging for… Continue reading Vancouver, BC, Canada: Hiking the Chief
