Whistler Mountain

We rode the tram up part way to the top of Whistler Mtn and then hiked the rest of the way (approximately 3/4 of a mile with  ~800 ft in elevation gain) to the top.  Not excessively long, but a good workout for our first hike with elevation.  The 360 degree views of the surrounding area were stunning, including Mt. Robson which is over 50 miles away.  Mt Robson is the mountain photo we sent yesterday whose peak is rarely seen out of the clouds.  The tram operator told us it is visible from Whistler only 13 days per year. Lucky us again!
