Located one scenic hour north of Vancouver, B.C.,
Excellent place to visit, I found it on a venture from squamish along eagle run, just when I needed a place to rest and recover, there it was.
Full of culture, excellent people, a local resource serving the community and educating people on music, arts, culture and history.
Lots to see and to do, and jsut ask if you want to learn more..
The coffee is good and the fireplace exudes a lovely glow, a place to relax and to enjoy..
Check out the faces sculpture.

How do we keep 'em so happy for so long? Volume, volume, volume!
They may be the United States' national symbol -- not to mention one of the coolest Muppets -- but bald eagles are almost endangered in the good 'ol US of A. There are more of these huge birds in BC alone than live in all of the US at any given time.
Well, in late January and early February, literally hundreds of bald eagles come to roost in Brackendale, a tiny place about 20 km from wee Squamish (which itself is the little brother to the mighty Whistler).
I plan to take decent photo gear this year to catch the visitation in all its splendour. It's worth every minute of the drive, and every degree below freezing it might drop while you're watching.
There's a viewing area across the river from where the eagles roost; they don't really like humans much, so depending on how much noise you and your fellow rubberneckers are making, the birds might decide to hide. So shush, turn off your engine and relax. Soon after things get quiet, they'll be less spooked and more likely to assume natural poses for your telephotographic pleasure.
