We are back home from our wonderful vacation away to British Columbia and Alberta. We arrived home last night after an hour delay in Toronto and no luggage when we got to Fredericton. Thankfully the luggage was delivered this morning and I've been doing laundry all afternoon.
I want to share a few more posts on our trip as I took so many photos of the beauty of BC and Alberta. Today I will share more of the drive to Whistler, BC. I hope you enjoy seeing the beauty there and that it might inspire you to visit one day.
This is Shannon Falls. It was just a short hike in to this magnificent waterfall and one could climb stairs through the forest to a viewing spot.
This is a stump of a very huge tree but it has other trees growing out of it. Amazing!
A bit of perspective of the size of the falls.
And the size of some of the trees!
Farther up the highway we stopped at a viewing spot to see some beautiful mountains.
A close up of the snow and ice.
It looked quite refreshing on this hot summer day. :)
Farther yet, up the highway, we stopped at another waterfall called Brandywine.
Some of these trails and look offs are not for the faint of heart!
There was a fence along this ravine though. Thank goodness!
It's difficult to tell how high this falls is in the photo but it's 70 meters or 230 feet.
This is the gorge wall opposite the viewing site.
Those are not baby trees!
The falls add water to the beautiful Daisy Lake, below.
Well, that is enough photos for today. I'll be back soon with photos of our visit to Whistler, the ski resort in the mountains of BC where the 2010 Winter Olympics were held.
Thanks for visiting!
