Starting early is essential for beating the heat and crowds.
On Saturday, The Bear and I were at the top of Snake by 08:00.
Followed up with a nice cruise on the SUP from the front yard to Darrel Bay and back.
I ended semi recumbent on the sofa and lapsed into an indolent torpor only to be awakened for the HETS rescue off the Angel Crest.
Some kind of multi sport day I guess.

Yes, you gotta know when to fold 'em.

We didn't get an early enough start (something about driving until after midnight), but at least were smart enough to figure out that overhanging offwidth in full sun on a 30-degree day was the wrong thing.

The right thing? Uh, lets get out on the spit and get in the water and wind! Turned out the spit was hosting some kind of international kite boarding comp, and we not only got beer, but saw some pretty amazing off-the-water flying. Multi-sport indeed.

I posted one picture on the previous page, but here are a few more

These guys were bearing down on the crowd at warp speed, and lifting off so close that they could practically touch hands with the spectators.

I don't have much of a telephoto on my old point-and-shoot. He really ...

Whoa! Hamish... Hope you're okay.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, but other times we really need the words.

Lightning? The rope looks muddy, too. Some kind of close call and quite a neat de-sheathing. I hope you recover well.

jeez when it's that hot in Squamish you should pool some cash for the chopper ride to the Little Toba, thousands of feet of sun kissed granite with a glacier or 20 to keep things cool.

87 km from brackendale as the crow, or A-star, flies... that must be closer than Pemberton!

Thanks for the good wishes. As you can see, I did something really dumb. No excuses. Just dumb. 'Nuff said. Fortunately my wrist is not nearly as bad as it looked at first. My bank a/c [and my pride] took a bigger hit than my wrist.
Cheers,
