Whether you are a local or a visitor, Grouse Mountain is one of the most popular attractions in Vancouver. And if you're looking for a real challenge, then look no further than the Grouse GRIND....also known as a steep ass hike...also known as nature's stairmaster....also known as hell...okay now I'm exaggerating.
Since Chasen's never been on the Grouse Grind, I thought I'd surprise him with an intense hike and see how much I can intimidate him..well..turned out I started wheezing before we even hit the 1/4 mark, sad I know, and he ended up waiting for me every 5 minutes to catch up...should have seen that coming. Even as a "local", it kicked my butt, hard. I don't think I realized how awful my cardio was till today, but it certainly was a humbling experience.
Once we got to the top, it was like "HALLELUJAH." We also finished slightly under the average time! We are hoping to get it done sooner the next time we go.
And the best part was, we made it just in time for the Lumberjack Show! (And for those who know what I'm talking about, Prince Harry was not there.)
