Canada Trip Day 23: Highway 99, the Sea to Sky Highway

5 July 2010 - After dropping off some passengers in Vancouver, we headed back to Whistler using Highway 99. What I love about this Highway is the beautiful views of the islands and of the Straits of Georgia. We got to visit Shannon Falls for the second time and it was nice because the weather was getting slightly warmer.
