One of the highlights of the last week was taking the boys snow tubing at Granite Gorge in Keene, NH. They had their February vacation last week and NH is having their vacation this week – so we figured that we would have the place to ourselves, and we did, for a while.
It was actually my sister-in-law Gisele’s idea to come here. She is far more daring that I am. Here they are just raring to go!
Gisele told the guy who gives you a push to whip her around before sending her off. Here she is having the time of her life! And then there she was at the bottom falling over, because she was so dizzy. Wish I caught a picture of that!
Spin? No thanks. I made sure to beg the guy to please Do.Not.Spin.Me. He replied with, “Ok, so, spin you as fast as possible?” “NOOOOOOOOOO!” I half screamed and giggled. It turns out, it was a lot of fun. I actually went down a few times. The scariest part was at the bottom. I was afraid I was going to run into someone!
Check this out. The snowboarders hop up on that pipe and slide down. At least that’s what I was told. I didn’t actually get to see any snowboarders attempt it.
As I mentioned, we had the place to ourselves for a short time and then the bus loads came. Can you see James waiting in line?
The boys tried going down two at a time. They almost lost each other near the top.
What a fun day. A great way to end the week! We would definitely head back to Granite Gorge for more snow tubing fun.
Have you ever tried it?
