... carried on the gondola and then they rode down, madness. Snow on the top of the mountains and rather chilly and windy. Early night as up early for our overnight boat trip. Bit of exceptional weather as they do not normally have snow in summer!! But we are wearing our jackets again so all that carrying was worth ...
