My adventure in Vancouver

Hiking Grouse Mountain

Rahel, Pauline and me arrived to Vancouver almost on the same day. Therefore, we became close friends inmediately. During our first week in the city the weather was really bad and it was raining all the time. After waiting for 2 weeks, the sun finally appeared. For this reason, we decided to go hiking Grouse Mountain.

At first, everybody was so excited with the idea of hiking the mountain. After walking for 20 minutes, we realized that it wasn´t as easy as we had thought. For example, a friend felt tired and sick so she decided to go back. While we were getting close to the top, the road became harsh. In fact, my legs were shaking and I barely could breathe. However, I continued hiking. Finally, we did it.

The feeling of being on the top was great but I think I won´t do it again. At least, not for the next 2 months!

The Grouse Grind is quite the workout! I wouldn't want to hike it in this heat. Next time check out Lynn Valley. It's beautiful and not as steep.
