Back in August we did a gorgeous day trip to Whistler with our friends. Here are some photos from the trip.

On the way there we did few stops along the way to photograph the sights.



Tantalus Range is always worth a stop right after Squamish.





Once we made it to Whistler, the town was really busy with bikers and summer tourists.



Up on the mountain the views were amazing.



Making our way to the summit chair lift.









Finally at the summit!











What an amazing summer day! Whistler is currently in process of building a new suspension bridge summer attraction across this gorgeous view. I am sure the tourists will love it once it opens next summer!



The program of our day was to do the Half Note Trail which is a beautiful hike around the Whistler Mountain.









We were surprisied how much snow there still was along the trail, which had actually opened only a week earlier!













Symphony Bowl is skiing paradise in winter, but in summer it looks so vast and barren. I can't wait to ski down there in couple of months!



Finally we made our way back through the famous snow walls. Even though they were only half of what they are in spring, they were still 5-6 meters tall and an impressive sight. There is no chance that all of the snow will melt before it starts snowing again...



And there you have it. Whistler is just an amazing summer destination for anything, like a simple day hike.
