hwy 99 > whistler to marble canyon, british columbia

I was so excited to meet Rob’s best friend from childhood, and his rad girlfriend Amelia. I knew I would like them, but seriously, they were the coolest people ever… and hanging out with them made ME feel like I had been their friend for forever too. And that’s a wicked feeling. I love when…
