Whistler with kids and a fun place to see eagles and eat along the way

January 4, 2018

When I was a kid, I grew up in a small Vancouver suburb and we used to be able to drive to Whistler and back for a day trip.  We had our favorite places to eat, like Ingrid’s which is still in Whistler, and we would always stop at the McDonald’s in Squamish along the […]

Snowshoeing in Whistler for the first time with kids (Callaghan Valley, British Columbia)
