day three

Another big breakfast, and the weather just keeps getting better 😉 I could get used to this!

Decided to do W2 today which is a combination of “Whytes Level” and “The Wall”.  While waiting for David to join us on the trail, I played around with some camera effects on my wife’s phone.  This one below is my favourite.

and this is what happens when you’ve eaten too many sausages at breakfast time 😉

day two

Big breakfast. Waiting for Brendon and the rest to arrive.

Only a drizzle this morning which should clear up. Going to do Skyline today – 44km and roughly 2000 m of ascent – looking forward to it.

Um… This way… No… That way…


Quite barren in places, due to some disease that’s killing off the trees, huge areas are being cut down, a real shame
