We rode the gondola up the mountain today and hiked around. The girls enjoyed the ride down so much that we decided to go back up and come down again. E got a little freaked out the first time we came out of the gondola house to go down the mountain. I happened to pick her up off the seat just as we came out of the house and the gondola sweeps down a little. She was looking out of the window and had a nice startle reflex that I haven’t seen in months.
The hiking at the top of the mountain was beautiful. It was strange to look around at the runs I used to ski at as a child and know exactly where I was even though the hiking paths did not follow the same trails.
