The Sea to Sky Highway (Route 99) is the road you take to go from Vancouver to the resort town of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The road was vastly improved to accommodate the 2010 Winter Olympics, so some of you may have seen pictures of it. But this was taken, through the windshield, in 2006, when the drive was much more of an adventure. Going through the Coast Mountains, we ran into heavy rain, snow,sleet,slush and whatever else Old Man Winter thought we’d enjoy! The biggest concern was rounding a bend and finding a gate across the road, meaning “turn around and go home!”, but we were lucky that day.

    Excellent wintry capture Jann…love DOF, and the POV here…inst fave BTW!!!

  • Good morning Larry, thanks so much! That was a hairy drive, George told me to take the pics and he’d keep us on the road. Both ideas worked well LOL! Even managed to avoid most of the raindrops on the windshield,by taking a great many shots and picking them over later. Many thanks for the Fave, much appreciated!

  • Hi Carolyn, glad you liked it. The pics turned out to be better than the trip..lol! Started out with a fairly nice day but once we hit the mountains it was another story!

    Great shot, Jann! George is a braver man than I am! Icy/snowy roads definitely do not agree with me!

  • Hi Mike, thanks for the compliment! The windshield shots were actually OK in most cases. I took lots! George wasn’t too thrilled with the weather, there were various colourful comments which would make laughable reading, I’m sure:) Sort of like Billy Connelly would make!
