Due to the worst rain & fog in Las Vegas since 1968 all the flights out of the airport were still back logged from the night before. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours, so it was a very long day. However we finally arrived in Denver in the dark, picked up a car. Not the cheap little compact I had booked, ended up getting a Jeep SUV. Dylan very happy. And I am very pleased that I did. I was sitting next to a lady on the plane who gave me lots of local information, so went to Wal-Mart on the way. Also bought GPS as the car has satelite radio but not navigation. Headed on to Silverthorne in increasingly deteriorating weather. At one stage while I was driving the snow was so bad I couldn’t see 6 feet in front of me. Scary. Found a safe(ish) place and put the car in 4wd and that is how it is going to stay for the next 2 weeks. It is dark at 5.00 pm just to complicate things. Finally arrived at the condo at 9.00pm. Note to self – knee high snow and pants don’t work. Must buy ski clothes! It’s -9 at the moment, and beautifully sunny outside. The views are spectacular. We are above 10,000 feet, so today we will be taking it easy acclimatising. And probably buying thermals!
Camera status – hoping to find something today.
