The weekend immediately following my birthday (that's two weeks ago now), Sarah and I went up for a trip to Whistler. We had a great time -- we did ziplining, something we've wanted to do since we were in Costa Rica 6 years ago. We also rode up the Whistler Village Gondola to the Roundhouse lodge, then across on the peak to peak gondola. For those of us wary of great heights, it most definitely is a great height. Apparently they even have its own radar system meant to detect planes heading towards the gondola, and warn them away with broadcasts on aircraft frequencies and strobe lights. It was the longest 11 minute ride I've ever had, and of course you have to do it twice (to get back). And of course on the way back we rode in the glass bottom gondola.
