Mount Kosciuszko - December, 2017.
- - - - - - - - - - - - -
Mt Kosciuszko is Australia's highest peak at 2,228 metres (7,310 ft) above sea level. The landscape has been altered by prolonged periods of uplifting, faulting, folding and erosion. It is now a low profile mountain range defined by ridges of hardier erosion resistant rocks and divided by streams like the Thredbo River which have etched out deep valleys. In total, it took us about six hours to get up and back, but that included us stopping as often as there was information and to have lunch at the summit. There was a surprising amount of snow for December. Not sure if that’s typical, but it made for a cool trek. (Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all week ⛄️) There were a few families there too, so doing this with the kids is not off the cards. Almost all of the walk is paved, but we learned from a guide that just so happened to be around that you can go off the path if your group doesn’t walk in the same line because it can create tracks. The view from the top is pretty amazing. Compared to some of the other hikes we’ve done, this wasn’t as physically demanding, which means you can probably appreciate the scenery a little more, which - as aforementioned- is as breathtaking as any other climb we’ve done. Love this beautiful and diverse country of ours. 🇦🇺 - JO

Look beyond the difficulties that life can conjure and seek the small treasures sewn along your path instead ❤️
