Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains

All of you great people will have to forgive me for not e-mailing or posting on your blogs.  We have been so busy today.  Today was the day we rode the gondolas up the two mountains.  In fact we rode the gondolas a total of nine times.  That included the peak to peak experience.  One reason for this hopping was the weather.  It would rain on one mountain and be better on the other peak so we traveled back and fourth.  I think the two highlights were seeing a rainbow as we went up the first mountain and seeing a black bear in the wild. He was just snooping around looking for berries(I think) right below the gondola.  We are very exhausted tonight-but in a very good way! I hope you enjoy the pictures!






























Way down there you see the dirt bike trail.









Too wet to have lunch out there!





Thanks so much for taking a look at my blog! Hope your week is going well!
