The Lions

I’ve heard a couple tales as to how these amazing peaks so visible from Vancouver got their name, but the one I like the best is that when Captain Vancouver first saw them, they reminded him of the marble lions that so often graced the stairwells at the entrances to government buildings and banks back home in England. This may or may not be historically accurate, but it works for me.
