    Snowy Mountains

    October 11, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Today we went to DACHSTEIN MOUNTAIN. We went up the mountain in a gondola that was made out of glass. At the top of the mountain we saw white snow. It was cold and every thing you touched froze your hand. We walked across a bridge that had the wind rushing on you, and if you dropped something it will fall in the snow until it hit the mountain. (the snow was about a metre deep). At the top of the bridge we went inside a door covered in a snow roof. It was the ice palace carved into a glacier. It looked cool and it felt cool too (-0.2*). It was dark and there were ice sculptures, at end of the palace was a throne that we sat on. It was cold, but really cool.

    At the bottom of the mountain we walked up a trail for fun. At the end of the trail was a cottage that sold drinks and had a "sound of music" hill. As we walked back we saw avalanches off the edge of the mountain and 3 mountain goats. It was deadly but beautiful. Soon after, dad starting throwing snowballs, so everyone did. It was funny (^o^) As we went home in the car we saw another snow slide.
