Wonderful hike

It was a challenging hike but the scenery at the top was totally worth it. I was very glad that the trip was not cancelled even with few people signed up. Nafees was super knowledgeable with hiking and photography skills. In addition, he was really good at controlling the pace and encouraging us to make it to the top. So we had great conversation on the hike and shared good information. Highly recommend for a day trip to anyone who is visiting Vancouver! Thank you so much.
