Fun weekend at Whistler and the Tulip Festival

April 25, 2006

Went up to Seattle this past weekend to visit Rose (her mom and brother were in town visiting too). We went up to Whistler for a fun day of spring snowboarding. Even though it’s already mid/late April, the snow in the upper mountain was pretty decent. The peak at Whistler actually had a good 6 inches of heavy powder. The sun was out and you could see for miles, which made for some great photos:

We stayed at the Hilton Resort and Spa (which I believe is relatively new). They have some strange things there, like bidets in the bathrooms and a huge bear statue; but overall the hotel is nice. (whistlerblackcomb.com claimed it was 5 star, but I think it’s really closer to 4; it’s definitely not as nice as the Pan Pacific, Westin, or Fairmont)

On our way back from Whistler, we stopped in Vancouver and then the Tulip Festival in Mt. Vernon, WA. Rose and I went to the Tulip Festival last year too, but it was raining so we didn’t really get out of the car šŸ˜¦ This year the weather was phenomenal though, so we parked on the side of the street and walked around the flower fields for half an hour.

Rose isn’t a big tulip fan – I’ll let you guess what her favorite flower is šŸ˜‰ – but it was still a fun time. I’m halfway through my Flickr upload quota for this month… I better step it up if I want to use it up like last month!
