A few days in the mountains

My husband attended a business conference in Whistler, BC, near Vancouver. Whistler is a ski resort town and will be hosting some of the 2010 Olympic events. I went along and enjoyed relaxing and sightseeing while Husband attended the conference. What a life!

 

View from our hotel window - what a sight to wake up to!

 

Where does the path lead? There's always something interesting around the corner, in hiking as well as in life.

 

Many of the buildings are faced with stone - I love the texture and patterns.

 

During one of my walks in the woods, I noticed this tree root - to me it resembled a forest monster, rearing up to defend its territory.


Spring has been very late in coming this year. Patches of snow lingered in the shady woods. The forest is not silent in spring - birds sang with lusty vigour and everywhere gurgles of water added their accompaniment - tiny rivulets, gushing streams and small waterfalls.


I took a walk around Lost Lake, trudging on top of packed snow at times. Mountains, water and forest combined to fill my eyes and restore my soul. I catch a glimpse of God's glory in his creation and it is wonderful.

Sounds like a lovely break and what gorgious scenery and all that time to yourself.
That tree root is quite something and makes an interesting photo.

Thank you so much for the encouraging words yesterday! It is good to remember I am the apple of my Father's eye. No matter how old I get it's hard to erase the tapes of the past and look forward, but it's getting better everyday!

Blessings! Nancy
