I would always run my hand along them as we would walk to make them smell. Mmmm so nice! It's a special type of lavender that's more hardy and can withstand the colder weather.

... fall over and slide down the hill on the glacier. This was another good option I thought for the annoying loud group. Trekking on the glacier was awesome. Walking with crampons: When you step drive your foot down into the ice so you get good grip. If it is a slope don't just dig in heel or toe. Try to get whole surface of your foot into the ice. If going downhill keep looking up. You don't want too much forwards momentum when your feet are locked into the ground. ...
