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.
