We are going on a helicopter tour of the Alps today.
Should be nice! Hopefully we will be able to see some
The helicopter ride was incredible. I got to fly the
copter for about 15 minutes! Lot of fun. The
mountains are just incredible. Breathtaking. We were
able to see the Matterhorn and the White Mountain. Lot of
climbers out today.
This will be out copter today
That would be me
PRISTINE snow. No tracks or anything up here. Just
the ones we made. I must admit that I did eat a bit of snow.
:) Any true snow/weather weenie would do the same!
SNOW IN AUGUST!!!!!! I AM LOVING THIS! I could
handle this during July and August!
On top of the world!
WE ACTUALLY SAW A BUTTERFLY UP HERE! IT MUST HAVE ROAD UP
ON ONE OF THE WIND CURRENTS.
We built this snowman! Not the largest
snowman in the world.
Joey - Beau - David on top of the snowy mountain! This is
fresh snow. It feel about 2 weeks ago.
Hard to see with the blinding glare off the snow.
August? :) lol
David - Beau - Joey - in the Alps of Switzerland
So awhile back our helicopter pilot, Mark, buried a bottle of
non-alcohol champagne under the snow. He managed to find
it today with his GPS. It took him a little while to
dig out of the snow!
This is where he had buried a bottle
of non-alcohol champagne awhile back.
He found it with his GPS!
He found the bottle buried in the snow after about 5 minutes.
Amazing what a GPS can do!
So once he found the buried bottle he poured us some
A toast to FREEDOM and SNOW! :)
SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW
Beau - SNOW :) AUGUST!!!! Who would have though!
Our attempt at an August Snowman!
I think our snowman needs a little bit of work.
That would be me flying the helicopter :) Flew for about
15 minutes! He said I did a great job holding her steady.
Perhaps I should just fly us back to Canada???
I could use a pair of sunglasses...hard to see up there!
