BLACKCOMB MOUNTAINS NEAR WHISTLER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA – 1991

scan0031In 1991 we took a holiday and went to Seattle for a few days before renting a car and driving up into British Columbia.  After a couple of nights in Vancouver, we took the ferry across to Vancouver Island and stayed a few more days, exploring the island and its wildlife.  On the second to the last day, a head cold I had started on the first day of the vacation turned into a full blown sinus infection.  We were supposed to drive across British Columbia to Banff and then back to Vancouver.  However, I was feeling pretty listless at this point and we decided to scrap Banff and take the short trip to Whistler instead.  It was one of the best things that ever happened on vacation as Whistler in July was not crowded, and there were all sorts of activities available catering to the family crowd they were trying to attract.  It was also very affordable compared to the rates during the height of the ski season.  We went on a jet boat up one of the rivers; we went horseback riding; we took boat tours to see flora and fauna, and on the day I took this photo, we went up in a seaplane to see the glaciers.  The mountains in the area are the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.  This was the view from the plane before we actually got to the glaciers.
