This is the scene we were presented with from our dining room window yesterday morning! Despite dreaming of our summer holiday, we couldn't resist the allure of the snow, so we rugged up and took off up The Mountain. It was amazing up there, a bright sunny, albeit freezing, day and oh so beautiful. We had heaps of fun throwing snow balls, building snowmen, making snow angels, creating the biggest snowball EVER, looking for icicles, and getting our toes frost burnt.
When we got there the road was closed at the springs so we hung out there for an hour or so. As soon as the road to the pinnacle opened we were off. It was very blustery up there ( it felt like the skin on my face was being removed with an angle grinder) but amazing to see Mt Wellington covered in snow.
There was even snow INSIDE the lookout building. The boys even found snow up in the chimney of one of the little cabbins!!
The snow and wind had made some interesting patterns on the steel barrier cables and the grass plants, the rocks looks awesome - we thought they almost looked alive.
Once we were completely frozen to the bone we headed home for
Don't ya just love Tassie?
