For some time now we have been planning to race down to Cradle Mountain on the first sunny day after the first snow. Last Friday we did it. As you can see from the pic, it was a stunning day. There is nothing like a walk in the snow on a sunny day.
We started the 1.5 hour journey home just before dark. We were very conscious of black ice on the road, and got down to 1st gear on some of the downhill parts of the road. Early in the journey, we came accross one couple who had skidded out of control and into the bank. The tow truck was on the way.
