Smugglers' Notch

My grandson noticed snow on Mt. Mansfield (VT's tallest mountain) and wanted to take a ride to see if could find some snow on Friday.  He had the day off from school so parent-teacher conferences could be held all day.

We took a ride through Smugglers' Notch. There were signs warning that the road would be closed for the season on Saturday.  There was snow, although not that much.  We explored a cave or two, but it was already getting dark.  We made a plan to return next summer and spend a full day climbing on rocks.

Actually we started a whole list of things we want to do and explore next summer. For Dane, it will be the summer between elementary school and starting middle school.  I really hope he will still be interested in doing things with his old granny then! I of course have no worries about having the stamina to keep up with him. I take my vitamins.

  3. I think I need your vitamins. I wouldn't have climbed that at age 25 so it's probably not going to happen at 62. What a wonderful Grandma you are!!

  7. You are an inspiration to this G'ma. My Eli is not even two, but I hope to share lots of adventures with him. I guess I'd best start taking my vitamins. :)
