A DAY OUT AT GROUSE MOUNTAIN

The Mocs enjoyed a day on Grouse Mountain. The team road the tram up to the top where many activities were available.

 

After arriving at the top and a quick stop to view the map, the team followed the painted bear claws on the trail and found a Lumberjack competition taking place. Many student-athletes and staff climbed to the top of the mountain while others road the ski lift to reach the crest.

 

The team was treated to an up close look at a pair of orphaned grizzly bears. Coola and Grinder were separated from the crowd by electric wire and seemed mostly disinterested in the throng of photo-snapping onlookers.

 

Unfortunately, smoke from nearby forest fires obscured the view from the top of the mountain. However, the Mocs enjoyed the day.

 

On Saturday the team will go to the Capilano River Gorge and walk across the suspension bridge.
