Founded in 1907 as the Vancouver Mountaineering Club, the British Columbia Mountaineering Club is one of the province’s oldest outdoor recreation clubs. In 1973, the BCMC originally published (with The Mountaineers of Seattle) Mary and David Macaree’s beloved guidebook 103 Hikes in Southwestern British Columbia, which went on to sell more than 120,000 copies over six editions.

It’s only fitting that 105 Hikes In and Around Southwestern British Columbia, an all-new follow-up to 103 Hikes, should maintain a formal connection with the BCMC. A portion of the revenue from sales of the guide, which comes out May 26 from Greystone Books, will benefit the club.

The BCMC has kindly invited me to present a 105 Hikes slideshow at its June social at the ANZA Club (3 West 8th Avenue) in Vancouver — Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories. The event is open to both members and non-members. RSVP on Facebook. Continue reading “Event: 105 Hikes at B.C. Mountaineering Club social on June 12”
