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!

The Chief!

It only took me a little over 3 YEARS to finally hike the chief; and it was worth the wait! I will admit that I was huffing and puffing a little throughout the journey to the summit, but who wasn’t?! Right?! The view from the top (Peak 1) is simply breathtaking; and was the perfect spot to enjoy our lunch before heading back down! Nonetheless, below are a few pics from today’s adventure!

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!
