We took the chair lift up to the top of Thredbo slopes today, to do a 6km walk to Mt Koscioszko, Lookout. Hopefully I will be able to spell Koscioszko after these posts. I've spelt it different everytime I have typed it. After a few tantrums the children finally relaxed and enjoyed the walk up. The landscape of these mountains is so beautiful I wish I could capture just how stunning it really is. Streams, and wildflowers everywhere. Their are 24 different species of plants that are not found anywhere in the world. I could imagine this would be a landscape gardeners paradise very inspiring, the landscape itself has many mini landscapes in itself perfect for the back garden. Large rocks and boulders with flowering ground covers squeezed into the perfect spaces. The ground covers species must be abundant their is so many beautiful varieties. And the bonus a patch of snow to play in. This is the first time the children have seen snow, very exciting. I'm loving the snowy Mountains. I want to paint fields of wildflowers.
p.s. Rod wants me to let everyone know that the first photo is by him and it is copywrited, ha!
