two hundred and sixty one

 

2 October. I am grateful for once in a lifetime adventures. As if it wasn’t adventurous enough to do a helicopter landing high in the mountains on the very top of a glacier thick with fresh fresh snow, the wind then picked up and we had to get back to our helicopter to beat a hasty retreat off the glacier. It is hard to be hasty when you’re thigh deep in snow. Much laughter and a little panic from mom. Just a little. Jeepers.

    • It was Lynn … so glad we just did it!! But being in that little bubble while taking off in the wind with the ‘feet’ (apparently called skids) of the helicopter stuck in the snow (well, it felt like that to me!) … yikes! x
