Carpe Diem. Seize the day. And what a day it was. Unseasonably warm weather. Without commitments. Decided to hike The Chief. Arriving in Squamish, we laced up and headed off. Passing moss covered boulders, majestic timbers, fast flowing river and fellow hikers. Atop the north peak, sharing a sandwich. Drinking in the amazing view. Then scrambling back down around boulders and logs, over bridges and stairways. A carefree three hour adventure. Time for coffee and people watching. Stopping to browse through a gallery. Back home, warm bath and simple pasta dinner. Followed by Scrabble and a movie. Not a day without tears but a great day to be alive.
