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!

Patty and Selma Visit Vancouver

Okay, so obviously Patty and Selma from “The Simpsons” didn’t visit Vancouver, but the next “best” thing did; the Simpson Sisters!! While they aren’t twins, they certainly look like it! And given that they were both recovering from a nasty cold and both had a deep raspy voice I decided to call them Patty and Selma for the weekend! I also decided to make them my models so I could practice some portrait photography and play around with my camera settings. If you have any feedback please share it with me; it’s the only way to learn!

Oh, and as always, my regular model joined in on our adventures too! πŸ˜‰
