The Alps

I made a mistake when I planned to cross the Alps in Austria.  I thought I had found a road that would go through a pass between the mountain.  However the road went over the mountains.  I found myself climbing higher and higher.  The car straining to continue forward.  I had to put it in 2nd gear to make the grade.  I was really nervous, although I didn’t want my son to know it.  The car over heated on the way down so I had to stop for a while and enjoy the scenery.  It was beautiful.  There were cows with bells on their necks and sheep grazing on the slopes of the snow-capped mountains.   It was a trip I will fondly remember for ever, although I don’t think I will go that way again.
