    The Snowy Mountains were an ecstatic part of my childhood in all seasons. My father was a founding member of one of the ski clubs at Guthega – one that they built. A very early memory is being taken in a fireman’s lift up and down a ladder there.

    Later memories – exploring the country during the summer and early autumn. Having to pick up and carry my very small dog when walking to Blue Lake – she couldn’t make it through the dense vegetation.

    Exciting times skiing – although I was never a good skier because my father was always telling me to be careful . . .

    Leaving my poor dog in the ski room to thaw before she was allowed upstairs.

    Being taught how to play chess by so many amazing European gentlemen who now worked at the ANU and CSIRO – which means my endgame is STILL lousy.

    Anyway, a lot of fun.

      Me too Fiona. Reminds me that I haven’t been to Guthega since I moved away from Canberra about 10 years ago. Jennifer’s photos are very inspiring!

        I was at Guthega the other day as well. Saw two wombats fighting or fucking, I couldn’t tell.

      Fiona, I love your story, what an idyllic experience for a child.
      We’ve been up at Charlotte again this morning, used snow shoes this time, and I tobogganed, dangerously because I’m not that strong at the moment & the damn thing was difficult to control.
      Extraordinary amount of snow for October.

    Gee, must do your head such, such good being there. I can imagine just the sound of the rushing water, clear, cold and better than champagne to drink.

      PW, I didn’t get as far as drinking the water, I almost fell in the river just looking at it.
