I took some photos which might not have been possible otherwise travelled by car.

This is The Chief, a famous local attraction and lots of people hike/climb, admiring its beauty and presence.

As mentioned, three hours later, we arrived at Whistler.  It was raining too.

Beautiful raindrops sitting on the leaves, and the rain cleaning the air leaving a refreshing scent.

We didn’t really have a plan once we arrived in Whistler, until we saw this

Lost Lake Shuttle - it's free~

Yes, free shuttle service, a rare sight for most BC residents.  We checked with the bus driver, who was very kind, outgoing, and yes, it was a free service.  He also jokingly said that he might not be able to find the way, as he might be “lost.”  It was about a five minute ride, and then we arrived at Lost Lake.

It was breezy and warm, add family, and you have a memorable trip.

Soon it was time to say goodbye and make our way back home.

On the way home (on the train), these sceneries were captured:

This concluded our little one-day trip to Whistler by train.  Unforgettable experience, and we were all very fortunate enough to be able to see things from a different angle.  Special thanks to our conductor David, who provided excellent service and detailed storytelling during the trip.
