|9:55 It was just so beautiful to see the snow covered mountains get closer and closer. It did not take long though for Ruth to start feeling car sick. So she sat on my lap in the front.|
|10:05 WOW! We came over this one hill and saw this valley in front of us. It was breathtakingly beautiful.|
|10:30 Through that valley and heading towards Lake Taylor. Driving with the river to our right.|
|11:25 We used the shelter of two very big trees to get the girls into their snow outfits. We have had this toboggan out the toy library for weeks now, so I am so pleased we have finally gotten an opportunity to use it.|
|11:30 Up a little hill to try it out.|
Ruth was the first to go. I am sorry I did not film longer - I was worried my camera was getting wet. Their first goes were all quite slow as we got used to how things worked.
Hannah was keen to have a go next. She had an excellent ride. I think Brendon felt a bit better about giving a bit of a push to get them started.
Rachel then had the courage to give it a try too.
Then I packed my camera away and we all had a few turns. Then it was time for snow ball fights which was enjoyed by all. Soon every one's hands were really cold though so we had to head back to the car. We made sure everyone was in warm dry clothes and started the trip back.
|12:20 The sun even made an appearance and it was just so stunning to see the snow capped mountains bathed in sunlight.|
|12:30 I wish I had taken a photo from this spot on our way there. There is a magnificent huge mountain right in the middle there (hidden by cloud in this photo) and the colour of the river is just spectacular.|
