Squamish

Squamish sits at mouth of the Squamish River, deriving its name from the First Nation people who once inhabited the south western region of British Columbia. Canada’s first people still have a strong presence in the region. There’s a band office, First Nation carvings and even the local secondary school has a touch of Squamish art.

I hoped to hike along the inlet trail when I spotted a sign. Unfortunately, there were no other signs to point me in the right direction and even though the town is small, I never did locate the trail.
