Whistler 18/07/09

Pablo at base-camp Whistler:
“7 of us went to Whistler Friday Night for 2 days of hiking. It’s nice to have a base camp on Whistler. I woke up late and I found my breakfast served. We started hiking Singing Pass at around 9:30am and we just make it on time to take the last Peak to Peak Gondola forth and Back, we even got the silver one back from Blackcomb. We went down to the village, went shopping, and then we went to the beach for a swim, and after we had a BBQ dinner before they closed the Village Gondola at 8:30pm. Thanks Mike for cooking. Some of us even did a small night hike to the village nightlife before going to bed for the next hike Sunday to Joffre Lakes.

Singing Pass-Musical Bumps took us 7 hours including lunch and time for taking 599 pictures. The snow is almost gone. We didn’t see any bears but we found several Marmots instead. We did Joffre Lakes in a more moderate pace. The Glacier is melting fast and going too close is getting dangerous because of the ice falls. Lots of mosquitoes and bugs.”
