Brandywine Falls, British Columbia, Canada
July 13, 2015

FYI: There are three photos on this page that are larger than normal and may take an extra moment to load. They contain important information about things in the area, and had to be large enough for viewers to read. Please be patient while they preload. If the internet is real slow, viewers can bypass the informative signs and just view photos of Brandywine Falls, but the signs are very interesting and worth the wait.

Acclaimed as one of British Columbia's most beautiful waterfalls, Brandywine Falls is located to the east of Highway 99 in Brandywine Provincial Park, 30 miles north of Squamish and 8 miles south of Whistler. It is a short, easy trail to view the falls from a viewing platform.

Below: A big sign about Black Tusk; the mountain that the two RV Gypsies could see while looking out the front window of their RV at the campground. It is probably the most famous mountain in the area, and easily recognized. It is where Thunderbird lives, which is also a big photo here. Each photo may take a moment to load, because Karen wanted to keep the two photos big enough for viewers to read.

Below: There was space in-between the two yellow signs to walk through and cross over the railroad tracks. The two RV Gypsies had no problem doing that, and all was fine heading towards the falls. But on the way back, when the two TV Gypsies got to this area, something was in the air and both Karen and Lee starting chocking.

There are two stories about how Brandywine got its name; the first tells of two railway surveyors who in 1910, waged a bottle of brandy on who could come closer to estimating the actual height of the cataract, and the winner got to name the falls.

The alternative tale claims that two old-timers stopped at the unnamed falls in 1896 to brew some booze and imbibed so much brandy and wine they ended up there for the entire day.
