Climb Every Mountain - Black Mountain

| | Comments (2)
DC is on a bit of a get-fit-before-his-next-big-bike-ride, so we decided to walk up Black Mountain today.

I forgot to turn on the GPS until part way through the Botanic Gardens.  The timing was something like:

11:30 - start of track (which was half way up through the gardens)
12:15 - arrival at summit (delayed by a bit cause we missed the turn off to the summit track and had to backtrack in the gardens)
12:34 - start back down
13:05 - approximate arrival back at above starting point
13:25 - arrival cafe after walking through the rainforest bit of the gardens

The GPS track is not 100% accurate but not too bad...

After we got back down we stopped for lunch in the cafe.  The magpies and choughs making a killing on leftovers (especially the magpies)

Was a good day.

I did that once. In the dark. Probably not a good move by us?
