Last week there was snow on the mountains and the views from the house were fantastic. Also had some brilliant sunsets here as well.
We will be adding lots of pictures of our adventure and sharing some of the highlights. Just need to get packing now! ...

It was beautiful in Autumn and we reached a lovely river which we crossed to then eventually circle back to town.
