... to see white snow every where. We came across where the kids were sledding and talked to a chap who let Liam borrow his sled. He thought it was just the best thing ever. You could hire sleds so we decided to catch the later train and for €7.00 Liam sled his little heart out. Rob & I couldn't miss a chance either.

... as the first. We zig zagged our way down to the valley, crossed a pretty little stream and then started the up hill climb to our destination. It was tough going, but we puttered on up the hill and made it back to town. We joined the many other hikers straggling back in to town after spending the day wandering around the hills.
