    Oh, I'll have to keep my eye out for your beautiful cars that day (I live in Brackendale, yet-to-be owner).

    By the way, if you want to get more up close and personal with the Eagles and wildlife, Fisherman park is less known but provides a fantastic walk up the beach along the river with great viewing opportunity. There is a decent sized gravel parking lot or you could even park in my driveway a few doors down and I'll look after them :p

    link to said Fisherman park in Brackendale if you are interested: https://goo.gl/maps/16YtHhWy6792

    Hoping you have a nice day for the Sea-to-Sky drive :D

    Update:
    We managed to get a guided tour from the Eagle Watch program. We'll be giving them a honorarium, so in leui of coffee/snacks at the Supercharger meetup portion, we'll be accepting donations towards the honorarium instead.

    More details:

    The Eaglewatch program will be supplying 2-3 experienced volunteers to help us with all our questions about the bald eagles. They will also be supplying 5 high-powered telescopes and 3-4 binoculars. If you have your own binoculars and long-lens cameras, don't forget to bring them. We will also have with us, a Masters student doing her thesis on salmon spawning channels and their relationship to the bald eagles (fascinating! Bring your questions!). There are several pairs of bald eagles who live permanently in the area and as the temperature drops, hundreds of bald eagles will be visiting Squamish! The whole family is welcome!!! Donation of $10/family appreciated as a honorarium to the program.
