Cherry picking some of my favourite Chilliwack adventure imagery, while dreaming of all that’s now available to us out our back door this summer.

I drove past Chilliwack for nine straight years, from 2004 – 2013, while heading to Manning Park each summer, and I’d never so much as stopped for anything more than gas and maybe a visit to the Value Village which is just off the highway…me and some friends once did a 20 for 20, “20 minutes, $20 dollars” and you had to wear whatever outrageous outfit you could construct for the rest of the day, but that’s another story entirely.

Anyways, eventually it got to the point where I could not drive past without saying to whoever was with me, “those mountains are gorgeous, there has to be a mountain culture in that area. I have to check it out one day.”

Finally, in 2013 I did some research, booked a campsite at Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park while having no idea what to expect, and then subsequently had my mind absolutely blown. I dropped a tent for six nights, summited 6 peaks, and did over 30,000ft of vert. My legs were fried and my life’s trajectory was permanently altered. I knew I had stumbled onto an area that would forever hold a special place in my heart.

Each summer since 2013 I’ve headed back out to Chilliwack at least once, and it’s always left me yearning for more. These images are a collection from those adventures while running/hiking/scrambling 13 different peaks along the Chilliwack River.

I am counting down the days till summer, till I can run again, and till this landscape officially becomes home 😊

Knight Peak – 2236m / 7333ft

Williams Peak – 2107m / 6912ft

Mt. MacFarlane – 2091m / 6860ft

North Nesakwatch Tower – 2255m / 7201ft
