Lost Lake
Whistler, Canada

We're in Whistler (British Columbia, Canada) for a couple of days, and this morning went for a bike ride. We rented bikes at our hotel (the Four Seasons Resort Whistler) and headed out on the easy trails to the nearby “Lost Lake”....

“Lost Lake” seems to be a popular name for lakes. Two years ago in Oregon, we happened upon a different “Lost Lake” during a side trip on a visit to Portland.

Jeffy,

2 points to consider: (1) My wife would MURDER me if she caught me riding my bicycle without a helmet, and (2), isn’t Anthony asking why Mommy and Daddy don’t have to wear a helmet?

Why would an adult need a helmet to ride a bike on a smooth path that’s closed to other traffic? —Jeffrey

Good points, Marty.

Jeffrey, surely the answer to your question “Why…?” is the same as why Anthony wears a helmet: a smooth track is just as hard as a bumpy one. I’m perhaps a bit sensitive on the subject, since my helmetless brother came off his bike three weeks ago, and spent 6 days in hospital as a result. Because of concussion, he has been told he is not to work for one month, and not to drive a car for 6 months. Seems a big price to pay for the comfort of not wearing a helmet – it’s changed my mind about them, anyway.

Gee you’re getting around the environs! Thanks for these pictures, it brings back memories of a brief sojourn a tick over 10 years ago. I didn’t stay in the posh hotels there, rather in one of the original ‘villages’ which serves as timeshares. Good time had hiking around – you’re cheating with those bicycles! 😉
