Alice Lake and Whistler


Posted by whalerho | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 24-09-2009

Our drive continued along the Sea to Sky Highway and while full of turns, we enjoyed the beauty and peace.  At one point, I had to stop and take a picture of  the road sign indicating a 13% grade up ahead.  YIKES!!  We made it thanks to a great engine break system.  Our drive ended at Alice Lake Provincial Park which is now our favorite provincial park in all of Canada.  Each spot was so secluded and woody.  We quickly set up camp and took a walk around beautiful Alice Lake.  We decided to spend a few days here as we loved it that much.  We strung our lights and had every dinner outside as the warm weather was thankfully still with us. 

The next day we left early in the morning and headed to Whistler.  There were signs along the highway indicating the Olympic event at each exit.  We also saw where the 2010 Olympic athletes will spend their days. This town  surpassed all our of expectations.  We walked through Whistler Village and could feel the excitement in the area with the upcoming Olympic events approaching.    We had a yummy lunch at an outdoor cafe and watched while mountain bikers road the almost vertical “slopes”.   Lauren (Poohnut) bought a new animal, “Pooky”,  and is now a mother of 42.  A very enjoyable day at a beautiful place in Canada.
