Today was a mountain high day..seeing the sights through Doug’s eyes..and his photographs…AND………………..
First trip of the day was the gondola from Whistler village…to the top?
One of the Whistler mountain employees took our photo..good job!!..and then proceeded to tell us that the “Peak Express” just opened for the day and suggested we should take the open chair lift to the summit of Whistler Mountain??!!..Doug was all for it…ME??..are you kidding me??..I gotta pee first!!
I went to the bathroom and as I was sitting there I thought “oh crap..what the heck?..life is short..go for it..!!
We did the ten minute hike down the hill towards the chair lift..no time to think about it..
We got our seat..wet as it was!!..and we were off….it was not the ride that was the scary part…but all the rocks…not the fall that will kill us..but the sudden stop at the bottom…the view was unbelievable!!..glaciers..crevasses!!..we could see as far as the clouds would let us…
Another photo op..this one was taken by a visitor from Minnesota..
I tried my hand at making my own innukshuk..a ‘baby’ one..SO PROUD OF IT!!
“TOLD YOU SO”….Our expert who told us..to ‘go for it’..and we are glad we did..so much so…we will more than likely do it again tomorrow if the peak is not in the clouds………….
The views from our peak to peak ride..through Doug’s eyes..he was the man behind the camera for the ride..
We stopped for a lunch break..we had packed a picnic lunch..bought a bowl of chicken noodle soup and some hot chocolate..it was a bit chilly on Blackcomb..as we were eating our lunch we looked outside and it was ‘snowing’??!!!..we thought it was August!!???
We are hoping for a better day weather wise tomorrow…it is suppose to be clear and sunny…??..some token flower pictures just for old times sake…the batteries in the camera are now dead!!!..better charge them when we get back….
We headed back to the hotel and a soak in the ‘hot tub’…a perfect end to a ‘high mountain afternoon’..
our dinner choice this evening is BBQ BOB'S…home delivery…
as today winds down..we have had sun, clouds,a sprinkle of rain..a downpour and some snowflakes…all in a day at Whistler….
