on the first day, we hiked up a very steep bit of mountainside to these enormous twin fir trees. our guides told us they were around 500-600 years old. the energy in this place is extraordinary. it’s pristine old growth, a full functioning ancient ecosystem. one of the most spiritual places i’ve ever been to. the squamish nation has recently secured its preservation.
