Travel Thursday – Whistler and beyond

Well the title should actually say..’Whistler and Beyond – Sun and Clouds’..because that is what this post is really about.

So anyways..we were camping in the vicinity of Whistler one summer, long weekend, which is un-usual for us, as we always visit Whistler in the winter. And we were thinking of things to do..well because we couldn’t ski ofcourse. So we decided to drive past Whistler and explore the area beyond, since it would be all new to us.

The drive was scenic with numerous stops for pictures and for picnics and just relaxing around a beautiful view. The day started out clear..which has to be interpreted as ‘No rain’ in the Pacific Northwest term. The snow-covered mountains and pine tress and lush green landscape was a feast for the eyes. The road less travelled which made for a very relaxing drive.

And then the clouds started moving down, which increased the charm of the view even more. Giving everything a very mystic feeling. A hide here and a peek there. The scene ever-changing as we sat and watched.

The sun tried making its way out every once in a while making for a glow in the clouds, adding another dimension to the gray, white, silver clouds and snow..

But the clouds always won. Adding an ever-changing gossamer film over everything. Moving every which way they pleased.

The sun was not to be left behind. It changed the entire view as it made its final decent on this side of the earth for the day. It added the colour blue to the mix of gray and white, drenching the clouds as it went.

The clouds not to be overtaken, changed the game again. Abandoning the mountains moving down into the valley.

The final winner..you ask? Us without a doubt. We had a very relaxing day, taking in everything, enjoying nature at it’s best. watching our beloved mountains showcased in such a spectacular fashion. Pure bliss.
