Finally she decided she needed a jar and she needed to have the jar at the ready as we kept encountering low hanging clouds and she was not prepared and all
The wonderful thing about the mountains is the weather. If you don't like it just change your elevation. We just kept climbing higher and higher. As the roads grew steeper I enjoyed the driving more and more, I have done 99.9% of the driving since we arrived. The clouds finally started to sweep down and Lily got more and more excited.
As I rounded a turn a cloud swept over the road. I couldn't stop as I was on a blind turn at the top of a hill but as luck would have it there was a driveway just ahead so I pulled in. Just as we got out of the car the cloud started "leaking" and we got drenched but I couldn't say no to her at this point. With her jar in hand we ran up the side of the road in the pouring rain. Once at the top she swirled her jar around and around and once she thought she had caught some cloud she slammed the lid on tight. My crazy nutcase kidlet was thrilled. She was beaming and soaked and she couldn't have cared less. Once in the car she showed Jacob and Rosie her cloud. And as I sit here typing this inside her jar has a tiny little swirling thing of moisture.
Kidlet caught a cloud!
What I didn't know was Jacob was taking photos and video. The photos are pretty bad as he isn't used to my camera and he didn't think to change the settings.
|You can see the cloud clearly here. It is NOT fog|

|Looks like we are nearly there.|
