Waterfalls in Whistler & Pemberton

Just a couple of kilometres north of the house we rented was Brandywine Falls.  Although we had all visited Brandywine before as we were passing it each day on our way in and out of Whistler we took another visit there this year.

Shortly before Pemberton these views of the Green River.

Pemberton is a huge supplier of seed potatoes to growers around North America and has affectionately been nicknamed Spud Valley.


However, even in these small country towns, you can still get a good mocha !
