About the photo: The Squamish Axe Man is a Squamish-adored icon and a relic of the town's logging past. He was erected to commemorate the annual Squamish Days Loggers Sports Show in 2003 and now stands guard over the Sea to Sky Highway in front of Chances Casino.

Round 2: Sketch Britannia Mine Museum

About the photo: Once the largest copper mine in the British Empire, Britannia Mine was animated with the boom of ore and grinding of machinery. The beautiful Mill 3 stands high over Howe Sound and is an iconic landmark along the Sea to Sky Highway.
