Cross The Creek

Rainbow lake Trail
Swaying Bridge

An interesting bridge crossing the creek on the way up to Rainbow Lake near Whistler BC. While the platforms and stairs leading onto the bridge have been pushed around by yearly runoffs, the a-frame system keeps the main plank crossing intact.

Hoary Marmot
Hoary Marmot

Met this cute critter while on a scramble to the summit of Blackcomb Mountain. For the most part  he seemed to turn up his nose and act like a disinterested bystander as we invaded his territory. Whenever I’ve run into marmots while hiking, they usually allow me to get within seven to eight feet if I’m careful not to make any sudden moves. Then it just becomes a staring contest until they get bored and disappear back into the rockfields.
