One of our favorite family memories of our family trip to Vancouver: conquering the Grouse Grind together: 2,830 steps. 1.8 miles long. 2,800 foot elevation gain. This climb is no joke – and absolutely beautiful.
It was a proud parenting moment also – the older two kids disappeared on the trail ahead of us (clearly forgetting their Harney Peak experience) and our youngest completed the whole route himself with some fierce determination. Video proof.
I was too busy looking down at the craggy terrain and thinking about the pain in my thighs to remember to snap any other photos until we got to the top.
