Yes, it was another new tour. This eight day adventure happened entirely on paved roads through some of the most beautiful and diversified terrain in British Columbia. We saw desert, vegetated delta flatlands, snowy mountains, ocean, lush coastal rain forest, and alpine environment. Wilderness and urban environments were part of this trip.

Total distance was about 630km. We overnighted in Lytton, Yale, Mission, Vancouver, Squamish, Whistler, Duffey Lake, and Lillooet. Along the way we saw the Thompson River, Fraser River, Fraser Canyon, Hell's Gate, Fraser flood plain, the Lion's Gate bridge, the Sea to Sky highway, Mount Garibaldi, Pemberton, and part of B.C.'s historic Goldrush route. A three day climb from ocean side Vancouver to Duffey Lake saw us climb almost a mile above sea level.

This trip was a nice sequel tour for the Club, after having done the Sea to Sky & Sunshine Coast tours over part of this route in 1994.
