Whistler, Squamish, Flowers and More, Photos of the Week, October 17th to 23rd

October 29, 2015 — 4 Comments

This past week was highlighted by a trip to Whistler, Canada as I hoped to catch some beautiful Autumn colours. On Friday, it actually felt like Summer, as I wore shorts in temperatures that reached the low 20s (Celsius). The clouds rolled in for the weekend, but I managed a good morning walk on Saturday until it started to rain. That was okay, because I was hunkered down in my hotel room in time to watch Game 2 of the Toronto Blue Jays / Kansas City Royals American League Championship Series. Exciting, right?  The game didn’t go quite the way I had hoped, as the Bluejays sadly lost. No photos of baseball, but now, please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media!


Vibrant red of autumn in Whistler!

After the rain…
I was lucky to arrive to this tulip garden at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, just as the sun emerged after a Spring rainstorm.

These Olympic rings are still a major attraction in Whistler. The people and tents in the background were there for the Whistler 50 Relay & Ultra race.

Roses in October…
With the mild weather in the Vancouver area, there are many roses still blooming. This was from a recent visit to the rose garden of Burnaby Mountain.

Are you Columbine?
Originally, I thought this was a Columbine but I’m not quite sure. If you know, I’d appreciate a comment. Taken in mid Spring, somewhere in Vancouver.

Sunday along the Squamish River in Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park.
This scene will be a lot busier in about a month as up to 3,500 Eagles and many seals return to feast on spawning salmon!
