Wow, just wow.

Quesnel to Whistler is an absolutely beautiful train journey even if there is a forest fire just over one of the hills reducing visibility a lot. Saw an eagle catching a salmon in Quesnel this morning, a few eagles and ospreys along the route, some wild sheep, a black bear, and completely failed to get any of them in a photograph.

Oh well.

The British and Aussie contingent on the train did their best to drink all the gin and tonic water they had (we didn't succeed, but when all drinks are included its awfully tempting to start a drinking game along the lines of, "Saw a bear? Get a round of drinks in! Crossed a trestle bridge? Get a round of drinks in! Can't think of an excuse for getting a round of drinks in? Get a round of drinks in!"). Our only real excuse was that as the tour group got relaxed they got loud, and as some of the US guys got relaxed they got loud and talked about DIY, loudly. In the face of that, ordering more G & Ts than the mind can comfortably imagine seems like a perfectly reasonably strategy.
