Trash Trail to Train Wreck

I’ve been up in Whistler, BC for the past few days for the yearly Automattic Grand Meetup. This morning, a few of us hiked along Trash Trail to a Train Wreck (which, while a great tagline for an autobiography, is actually the real name of the trail). The trail followed along the Cheakamus River,which presented several beautiful photo ops.

Our destination, across a suspension bridge perfect for a cartoon villain to cut, was a half dozen wrecked Canadian Pacific boxcars. The boxcars were covered with graffiti, which combined two of my favorite things – nature and people who write on things that don’t belong to them.
