Squamish Chief, British Columbia


Stawamus Chief, British Columbia, Canada

Also known as "Squamish Chief", this granitic dome stands at 700 meters (2297 feet) above sea level
on the eastern margin of Howe Sound, in coastal British Columbia.
The dome is an exhumed granodioritic pluton dated at the mid-Cretaceous, probably formed underneath a now eroded volcanic arc.
