I am going with the long journey definition of ‘epic’
this week…and even then I’m not sure…
And I ask all readers to allow for the fact that
this was only Day 2 of our journey and
that this author saw ice at the top
of Sulphur Mountain (Banff) in July 1976;
drove along roads where it had snowed in June 1982,
and has never seen the white stuff since.
The journey I speak of is the
Peak2PEak Gondola Ride
up Whistler and across to Blackcomb Mountain.
After reading my first statement you can see why
I thought this a magnificent sight.
with just under four and a half (4.4) kilometres,
or 2.73 miles, of cable between Whistler and Blackcomb
and no supporting towers in between, you left
gliding along some 1,427 feet above the valley floor.
the return journey.
This is the longest, and highest,
unsupported length of cable in the world.
But descend among the clouds we did
and still marvel at the height and length
of this journey.
Fairbanks to Coldfoot when we encountered clouds.
Most of our one hour flight we were flying in a cloud shroud.
Certainly not worth paying a premium for a window seat 🙂
Patrick sorry we did not have time to meet.
I will be in Auckland by noon, Victorian time,
on Friday so my post is scheduled
and based on forecasts for Friday.
Temperature ranging between
a minimum of 19°, to a maximum of 31°.
Cloudy and a chance of light rain.
So any one of these images…
could reflect Friday’s weather…
Sunset at Point Lonsdale Pier.
Storm clouds rolling in.
Storm clouds out to our west.
I know I posted this earlier in the week…
I still like the clouds.
Looking out our front door…
on Monday this week…January, 29.
Black and White Tuesday
This is the view from our camera club
meeting place for the next few years.
This is the cloud formation that made me
take my camera out of its bag last Thursday.
Cunningham Pier from Griffin’s Gully
this evening, Tuesday, October 19.

Last Wednesday parts of Geelong
while the storm wrecked havoc on Geelong
Leanne Cole’s ‘Monochrome Madness’ plus one of my BWs. Well worth a visit to the LCP Blog.
My contribution for this week’s
Travel Theme challenge.
Dear old Brandy did not think it appropriate that he had to push his head through the bottom of a bucket for six weeks. It was all in a good cause. He had an infected eye and earned himself the nickname of ‘Buckethead’ during this time.
A couple of nights ago there was a power supply interruption. I happened to glance out the window to see a rising moon peeping through the cloud cover.
Cloud cover provide some nice shots…I thought.
…and still a different view using maximum zoom.
