Joffre Lakes

To say that Joffre Lakes is stunning would be an understatement! Rob and I decided to take some well earned vacation this week and thought Whistler would be the perfect overnight getaway! We visited the Scandinavian Spa (which was unreal – and a must do) and spent the night at our friends condo in Whistler. The next morning we were up early and headed toward Pemberton and Joffre Lakes Provincial Park to experience first hand the awesomeness of this hike we have heard all too much about!

It took us about 2.5 hours to get to the third (upper) lake (mostly because I stopped every few minutes to get photos… I was clearly excited), and we took an extra hour to venture around the lake to the campground where there were less people, and many more spots to have our picnic! Surprisingly the hike back down was very fast; taking us only an hour (but we didn’t stop at all for pictures or breaks). Needless to say, I will be back!

Abbotsford Tulip Festival

Decided to go on a little road-trip adventure today, and ended up at the Abbotsford Tulip Festival! The sun was shining (and I have the burn to prove it), and the crowds were out in full-force to enjoy one final day of the beautiful tulips! Below are my favourite shots from the day – ENJOY!

Back In The Habit

It’s been wayyyy too long since I last captured some cityscape pictures, so it felt great when I managed to get back into the habit last night! It was so mild outside and the skies were the clearest they had been in a while, so I had no excuses! I also realized just how therapeutic photography can be for me. My work life has been absolutely insane lately, and I can’t seem to keep up with it all, but when I get behind my camera and find the perfectly framed shot I somehow forget about the endless to-do lists and countless emails. Speaking of which, I should probably get back to answering a few! Hope you enjoy!

Whistler Wonderland

With clear skies in the forecast yesterday was the perfect day for a road trip to Whistler. We hopped in the car, escaped the fog, and arrived just in time for the gondola to be CLOSED for tourists… oh well! We made the most out of the situation and went on a small hike by the creek instead! It truly felt like we were in a “winter wonderland” – there was so much snow and we both needed an escape from the city. It was particularly beautiful as the sun went down and the peeks of each mountain glistened with gold; but I was too busy having a beer to capture that with my camera! Nonetheless, we have already planned our next trip back to ski and to participate in “Winter Pride!”
