Project 52 – Our Town ~ Squamish Pet Photographer

I have joined a group of pet photographers who do themed blog posts every week. This week the theme is “Our Town” and we are meant to show off the places where we live.

I live in Squamish, BC, Canada. Squamish lies between Vancouver and Whistler, home of the 2010 Winter Olympic games. We have both a major urban centre and a world class ski resort about 45 minutes away. Squamish is a well known destination for rock climbers, mountain bikers, and outdoor enthusiasts of all types. The local radio station claims to broadcast “from the best back yard in the world” and I cannot disagree with them.

Winter on the west coast is rainy, but this photo, taken on Saturday, proves we get some sunshine too.

Squamish really does get sunshine even in the winter

On Tuesday I took Caiman down to the beach and snapped a few photos for this post. The beach is an old industrial area and active recreation site, and evidence of both are everywhere.

Rivet is visiting this week, so on Thursday I took her down to the Adventure Centre (our visitor centre). These shots are messier than I would usually do, usually I would put more effort into cleaning up the background, but for these my goal was to show you the scenery we have visible from everywhere in town.
