Photographer's Note

Good Evening. The Stawamus Chief is the second largest granite monolith in the world! This gigantic rock is not just for climbers; hikers can also enjoy spectacular views.

In order to see the details of this rock it helps to capture this rock face in late evening light.

For the longest time I kept hearing that you can see an Indian on this rock face. And besides that it is common among the folk in the town of Squamish that besides Indian Chief there is also a witch.
The view of the witch is not hard to find. Simply isolate the lighter rock tones and you can see the witch flying here.
To find the face of the chief it is a little bigger challenge for some. At the bottom of the frame just above the hydro wires and approx 1/3 in from the left is the base of the Indians nose. Keep in mind the mouth is not showing here. Look to isolate two rock faces...the one on the left is just the background to the face. That angled line cutting between the rock face from the left to the right is the side view profile of the Indians face. He is looking towards the left in the frame. Just under the hand of the witch is the shape of an eye. The edged line cutting through the mid section of the witch is the extended eyebrow of the Indian. If you cannot see the Indian please see the workshop where the face profile is highlighted.

If you are interested in more details about this rock face you can find more here. Enjoy. More views from the top of this mountain next.
