Sea to Sky

IMG_2791

Since it was Father’s Day, we decided to take a drive along the Sea-to-Sky highway to enjoy the Father’s world.

As we traveled along the mountain highway, the tune of the famous joyful hymn “This is My Father’s World” broke forth with joy from our hearts:

This is my Father’s world
and to my listening ears
all nature sings, and round me rings
the music of the spheres.

This is my Father’s world
I rest me in the thought
of rocks and trees, of skies and seas
his hand the wonders wrought.

The Sea to Sky Gondola, which open just a month ago, is the latest tourism hype in town.

It takes only 10-minutes gondola ride to go up to the stunning summit, but the adventurous spirit in us opted for the challenge to hike up to the peak.

We started our hike from the base — Sea to Summit green marker #1.
