Oh the Mountains!

Vancouver / Whistler - Today we headed to Whistler, British Columbia for a little mountainous sightseeing.  The ride up the Sea to Sky Highway was amazing. There were mountains to our right, the ocean and rivers to the left and waterfalls here and there.   Most of all, great big gorgeous Douglas Fir Trees.  

Two hour drive later we pulled into Whistler Village, home of the Olympic Skiing and Sliding Venus for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.  The bright blue skies only exaggerated the imposing view of the surrounding mountains of Whistler and Blackomb.   We had lunch at Caramba Restaurante (I had a Margerhita Pizza) and headed out to villages of Whistler and Blackomb for a walk around to see what was going on.  The views of the buildings and trees being overlooked by the mountains were exquisite.  Overall it was a fun visit.

On the way home we stopped off at Tantalus Lookout which looked like this:

Overall it was a great day out of Vancouver.
