River of Golden Dreams

The River of Golden Dreams is a kayak/canoe tour from Alta Lake to Green Lake in Whistler. It's a 3-hour long self-guided tour. Megan was too young to take a kayak down by herself, so the two of us went in a canoe. It was beautiful and a lot of fun! The kids did great, especially Lia who's elbow was still healing and who shouldn't have been paddling a kayak for three hours straight. But, she did it anyway without any complaining (not that she had a choice--I didn't even think about it until we were already on the water and it was a little late to turn back). There were a few parts that were a little hard to navigate (like the part where Nate capsized his kayak while trying to film the rest of us--thankfully his phone survived), but all in all everyone did great and had a great time!

Whistler Village

We rented a condo in Whistler and the first matter of business when we got there was the hot tub! We also checked out the Olympic Plaza and the shops that were right across the street from where we were staying.

Horseshoe Bay

After Lynn Canyon, we stopped at Horseshoe Bay to see the tide pools. It was also beautiful and the kids had a fun time exploring.

Lynn Canyon

On our way to the second part of our trip in Whistler, we stopped at Lynn Canyon Park. It has a pretty cool suspension bridge and is a great place to hike and swim (if you dare--it's pretty cold!). After our short hike to the water and watching everyone else jump in, Nate, Laura, Josh and Megan decided they couldn't resist. We had swimming suits in the car, but they jumped in in their clothes because the walk back to the car was just a little too far. Nate and Laura jumped from pretty high up on the rocks. It was pretty awesome. The water was cold enough to take your breath away, but they kept jumping anyway. It was a long walk back to the car, but they got changed and we drove to our next stop. Lynn Canyon was beautiful!
