This January I was all set to take an interim trip to Europe, but after 9-11 all international trips were cancelled.  So, when a trip to the Left Coast opened up I took advantage of the opportunity and signed up.  Nine students, including myself, traveled to Seattle, Victoria B.C., Vancouver, and San Francisco over a three week period.  We visited businesses and government agencies as well as taking in all of the sights and just plain having a ton of fun.   We stayed in some great and rather unique hotels and ate some great meals (some with fish heads none the less...) Alicia and I took our free day in Vancouver and drove 2 hours north to Whistler- for the most amazing skiing  (and views) ever.  Enjoy the sampling of pics I have up- click the thumbs for larger pics.  

Dana was all over the nightlife in Seattle.  A couple of planes waiting to be delivered- at Boeing. Dana with a dangerous weapon- sugar. The public market in Seattle.  If you wanted it fresh- they had it. Being goofy at Cragdarach Mansion in Victoria.

The scenery rocked on the way back from Whistler, B.C. Alicia and I hit the drive home at the perfect time-sunset. Making snow on the lower slopes at Whistler. Tougher than Colorado- yep! Alicia leads the way...  More sweet skiing...

Orcas island, with it's really cool harbor. Vancouver's shoreline.   Vancouver from Stanley Park. The chalet atop Whistler- good lunch and amazing views. The ferry trips were amazing- here's a smaller ferry...

When they marked something a  black diamond- they weren't kidding. Looking back at Vancouver from the expo center. You can see the town of whistler at the bottom. The Fairmont Vancouver- very cool place. We saw a lot of live music- this was a jazz club in Seattle.
