adventure just the same!

"Beautiful Rustic Ruins"
The wind up here is always strong, and it cuts through the fabric of your clothing with a bite! Glad that it
is fall, for in winter it would be impassable on this
road. I know, I had to call a tow truck once from this
very spot because I was embedded in the deep snow!
Dad tries to tell his young son that the drop off is very steep at the edge of this mountain! Fortunately,
the chill in the autumn air forces us to run for the
cover of the car, shivering with chattering teeth, to
seek a warm meal back at the lodge. But the view is
