Finally we sank into our vehicle seats with a tired sigh after a long walk back from our campsite at rainbow ski field. The sun, hot and powerful, beamed down on us as we ate our lunch hungrily. ‘Swim?’ asked mum. Before long we were at the edge of the nearly frozen over tarn.
The water felt like a whole lot of ice cubes, nipping at our bare skin. When Mum and I finally got the urge to jump in, it was already time to get out. Wrapping our warm towels around our freezing bodies, we jumped into our car and drive home content with the day's excitement.
