We headed off on our camping expedition to Nairn Falls, which is located between Whistler and Pemberton B.C.. We had camped there before but it's been a few years since the last time. The drive there is absolutely stunning with all the wonderful views of Howe Sound on the new and improved Sea To Sky Highway. We stopped at Shannon Falls to take in the natural wonder of the falls.
We spent a day at Whistler-Blackcomb, which was very exciting. After taking the gondola to the top of Whistler, we took the new Peak2Peak gondola over to Blackcomb. Looks totally scary, but it isn't, at least if you don't think about the vast space you are travelling across with nothing underneath you!! The kids loved it!

There were many trails or ski runs that you could hike on once at the top. The views were spectacular, even with the haze of forest fire smoke still looming.

It's was a great trip, one that I wish everyone could experience. It's amazing all the different languages you can hear around you, German, French, Japanese, just to name a few, while walking around, it makes the world seem smaller. You can feel the excitement in the air of the coming winter Olympics. Hopefully our family can make another trip soon...maybe to ski...or watch some of the Olympic events!
