High Note Trail, Whistler BC

It's been a busy few weeks, and not a lot of photo-worthy things have been going on. Justine had her friend Anthony visiting for a few days, so on Saturday we decide to spend the day in Whistler, and do a bit of hiking.

Last year we had hiked the High Note Trail, a 10 km hike around Whistler Mountain that starts at the top of the Peak Chair, then loops around the mountain last Harmony and Symphony Bowls, before heading back to Roundhouse lodge. 

It was another amazing day, lots of sun, quite warm and Whistler was crazy busy. The annual Crankworx bike festival was on, and the Squamish music festival was also happening (in Squamish of course), so there was lots going on.

We got up to Whistler at a decent time, sorted out lift passes and headed up on the gondola. From there, we had to walk back down a bit to the Peak Chair, which took us all the way up to the top of Whistler Mountain.

There's not really a lot to say about the hike itself - it's beautiful, not too tough, but pretty long. We took our time, enjoyed the amazing scenery and had a good day. I think I'll just include the photos in a gallery, and you can enjoy looking through them.
