On Top of the World


Whistler Peak 2 Peak Gondola Admission Ticket, Whistler, null

A peak experience was experienced (really!) during my Christmas week in Whistler visiting family. It was the day we took the gondola peak to peak sight-seeing trip; the wonder of it all took my breath away…literally, at one point. There were twelve of us having lunch in a mountain-top restaurant. We enjoyed fabulous food, great fun, super scenery, and a wonderful togetherness before eight of our group went skiing down the mountainside and the other four, including yours truly, hopped the gondola for the peak experience of travelling from the top of Blackcomb mountain to the Whistler mountain peak. I had only soared above the clouds on airplanes up to that point. Words cannot describe the beauty of it all and it reminded me of the Carpenter’s 1972 hit “Top of the World” because it was my family’s love that put me there.

  1. I love to listen to Karen Carpenter sing, such a consummate professional who meticulously sang every note to perfection, tragically Karen’s perfectionism benefited all of us but never herself, her perfectionism was a symptom of the eating disorder she battled daily, Out of tragedy came beauty, we still fondly listen intently to her voice in admiration for it’s tone and clarity lifting us as this song says “On top of the world” in our enjoyment. So glad to hear of your great trip, great family get together in a wonderful landscape. God works in so many ways in our lives, glad he worked overtime for your Christmas experience.
