Hiking in Whistler with the parents - August 14, 2009
and photos by Lee Lau unless otherwise noted.
I took Mum and Dad up to Whistler to check out the alpine hiking opportunities and ride the Peak to Peak Gondola. What a spectacular day! The clouds stayed low in the valley while the sun shone high. Temperatures stayed cool and mum and dad had a wonderful hike.

We waited to get on the glass-bottomed Peak 2 Peak gondola

Mum wondering where the alpine flowers in the meadows are!

Mum can still scamper down trails pretty fast!
Gee - I wonder where I learned to duck ropes?
I then forced the parental people to hike up the steep part of Highway 86!
Mum found the exercise enervating!
