Summer School in Probablility 2008
The School schedule ran 4 days per week to give participants ample time for study, interaction with other students and discovering Vancouver and its surroundings. Many explored the old growth forests at Lighthouse Park and Lynn Canyon and Headwaters Parks on the North Shore. Those who enjoy more strenuous hiking discovered the beauty of the surrounding mountains and ocean on a number of organized hikes. This year we went to the top of Anvil Island which is only accessible by water taxi from Horseshoe Bay. The 2500 ft. climb takes a full day and gives beautiful views of Howe Sound. We also went on day trips with 2000 ft. climbs to High Falls Gorge in the Squamish Valley and the Stawamus Chief, a renowned rock face for climbers--we went up the back side. Over thirty participants went on each hike and the weather was perfect this year.
