Feeling Festive

One could describe today as being light-hearted, snowshoeing along in lightly falling flurries under a sky of ever-changing lighting!  Rummel Lake is a little lake tucked away beneath Mount Galatea and Mount Engadine and which is elusive to some but it did not elude us today!  Once above the forest of young trees this was our vista off towards Tent Ridge and the Spray Lakes.

With only a few more days to go until Christmas, I'm full of the spirit and in the mood to celebrate!  I took a touch of the spirit along with me for our trek.  It's the little touches that do it for me.  One of today's little touches was a Santa hat.  Festive?  Yes!

The other was a reindeer carrying presents!  Festive?  Yes!  I like to believe the little boxes are filled with chocolates!  He piggy-backed on my pack the whole way up to the Lake.  If you can believe it, we are both standing on Rummel Lake.   This area had a humungous amount of snow.

The day started out with cloud and snow flurries, not allowing much of a view but we brightened the day with our play and conversations.  As the sky began the ever-changing parade of lighting, it brightened our day too!  It was so quick to change, that I had to be quick with taking photos!  Here are a few photos I captured of the display!

This one is my favourite!  The mountain is called "The Fist"!  Can you see why?

These get-a-ways to the mountains are the opportunity to take the time to let the child within come out to play.  I like to let my eyes roam and look for the unusual, the unique, the beauty and to let my imagination run wild making believe I see something that others might not!  Is there a Santa Claus?  Adventure Designer and I think we saw him today!  Festive?  Yes!  

I needed today to be exactly as it was and for that I am thankful!  I am thankful too, to have the play pals I have!  Being with them in the mountains, feeling festive, makes me feel like I am "on top of the world!"
