Here is shelter from the storm.
Near our place is a path through the forest.

Snow and Christmas. What could be better?
A Merry Christmas to all!
Just up the road from the Portage Hotel on Peninsula Road is this large tree which hides on the side of the road most of the time. However, when snow comes it is revealed as the wonderfully shaped living thing that it is.

Boats get launched here in the summer. Yesterday there was no lineup.
One of the more beautiful places on Whistler Mountain.

It was wonderful!
