We headed out into the wilderness, and we'd been on the road about 15 minutes, and next thing you know, we'd gone from an autumn season with a frost, to full on snow. Needless, to say we SLOWED right down, just not used to it, and also quite a big 'wagon' to have to maneourve on a slippery surface. It was quite beautiful though with all the 'Christmas trees' garnished with snow, surrounded by the glory of the mountains.
At every turn,we felt that we were the first ones to discover the isloated lake that was before us, or this lonely rock face that had been here for centuries, such was the ominious nature of it all. Of course, the actual fact, is that these sights get hundreds of thousands of visitors every year, that I'm sure feel exactly like us.
We saw many, many amazing sights today, ice-blue rivers, the deepest canyons, the roaring waterfalls, wildlife roaming free... I don't really have the words to explain it, and so, will let the photographs tell the story, unfortunately, even they don't tell this story loud enough.
