The Sea to Sky highway
offers a scenic drive to Whistler...

(The beautiful coast mountains)
... a popular resort town
125 km north of Vancouver...

(Wild flowers along the highway)
...check it out here.

 (Most of the photos are from Tantalus lookout)
A beautiful drive on a beautiful day..
...with a beautiful view of the coast mountains to the west...

and the ferry arriving at Horseshoe Bay,
 as we drive by.
Enjoyed every minute of our trip.

Bear Aware

We usually see some wild life on our
excursions from BC to Alberta....
...and our last trip did not fail to please... we saw this magnificent,
glossy, healthy bear...

...feeding along the highway.

He was very aware of us
and I was very content to stay in my vehicle
to snap a few pictures.
Thank you for visiting today!
