We headed out to Oberon this weekend in the hope of seeing some snow... and we sure found it!!! It was awesome - this is the first time our boys have ever seen snow and they were so excited. We thought that there might just be some snow on the ground, but it actually started snowing while we were there - it was freezing! After Oberon we headed to Jenolan Caves but decided to take the 'scenic' route and drove through Shooter's Hill, where we passed several isolated properties displaying signs that trespassers will be shot!!! So we got out of there pretty quick, and ended up on Bastard Road (who names these things?) but the name made sense when the dirt road quickly turned to mud once the snow fell! But I guess it was all part of the adventure.
After we had our fill of snow we finally we reached Jenolan Caves and did the cave tours. This was our first time there and it was pretty spectacular. Matt capturing all the action on the video camera while I took the photos.
We had a really great day, but it was a good thing we left when we did, because just a couple of hours later the roads got snowed in and had to be closed, and we would have been stuck there... although that might have been fun too :)
