We're off to see the mountains!

Actuallllly; we're not.
Because we've already left, come back, edited my pictures and are finally able to post them! =D
But I thought of that title while we were driving through the mountains and it was just to good a title to waste. You know what I mean?

Anyway, we woke up to a surprise the morning we left...


Which resulted in crawling along the highway at 30ish mph on the snow packed roads.



The scenery was quite nice though.... =) (for those not driving!)



Sudden gusts of wind would come Whooshing across the fields and white out!







Later, of course, we drove out of it, zipping along merrily.


Yup, more birds...a lot of them were captured with my little black box this trip. ;)





Sometime after we arrived at my grandparents house, my aunt, sister and I took a walk  further up the mountain, and were rewarded with a really good view of the valley:


(And yes, those three specks in the sky happen to be birds...)







These trees were exceptionally tall!
I could have sat around under them all day, just looking up...  and imagining climbing it, what an awesome tree house you could build in it, the view up there...




Then, as we looked on, the valley was graced with a lovely sunset.




~Jenny, who promises more pictures of just the mountains, soon and very soon. ;)

    1. Sadly, there is only a pile of leaves where the Snorse once stood, but Yes! I think it couldn't have turned out better than if I had wished for snow on New Year's day!
      I do hope you get some snow though! =)
