Since Laury has been struggling with some pain in the knee, we had to get creative and find a new way to the waterfall that would not involve the 1 1/2 hour walk that we did last time (sorry Oma and Papa but we promise we will take you this new way when you come back). We were able to drive all the way to a wonderful lookout point for a great view and with all the rain and melting snow, the falls were magnificent!!!
After we saw the falls we came back to the lodge to relax and then the rains came pouring down. It rained for the next several hours and our Braai facilities were in the open and were drenched so you can see that Bryan got creative with our fireplace. We had a cozy and relaxed evening away and a great time making smores in our fireplace and having some great laughs with some really amazing friends. So here are several pictures for your viewing pleasure. The kids got their much wanted chance to see snow and even play for a short time on our drive back.
|Our view on the drive up to Semonkong, there were many times we were driving in the clouds.|
|The view of the falls on Saturday, it was so windy and cold that we ate our picnic lunch in the car.|
|Bryan being resourceful with cooking our dinner.|
|The falls on Sunday. It was much warmer so we hiked around for a little while before the long drive home.|
|One of our views while driving, so beautiful!|
|We stopped for a short snow break along the way and made a baby snowman for our car "the Beast." We all made bets on how long the snowman would make it on the car - it wasn't very long ;)|
|Bryan hit every single mud puddle along the way just because we have the right kind of car for it...I think we brought lots of the mountains home with us.|
