    Mt Maroon, Qld Australia

    Finishing the mowing & whippersnipper duties by lunchtime, I quickly grabbed a foil pouch of salmon, some udon noodles & half a pkt
    of tim tams from the cupboard, chucked my pack in the back of the ute & headed for Mt Maroon.

    The mountain is calling......access is through the steep gorge on the left of pic.



    Gaining ground....



    What a sight for sore legs, last rays of the day....better drop off the summit & find some trees !



    Ooooh the calories....moreish tim tams.



    Morning sunrise, the best I could do, the summit was shrouded in swirling mist.



    Camp pics...




    Breakie...noodles, salmon & lashings of pepper. Warmth on a cold & windy morning.




    Times up....time to head back down to civilization.


    Great weekend....2 awesome peaks climbed with great views.
    Don't worry about the leeches....just think of them as baby love bites !
    Enough talking....let's get walking !
    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.

    I have to say that is a great looking area and you get great viewpoints as well. Tim Tams ??

    Tim Tams = evil...evil cunningly disguised in variously flavoured gooey chocolatey biscuits.
    Trampers / Hikers in the Sthn Hemisphere (do they have them in the UK ?) justify them by saying "Well, I've walked all this way...one won't hurt"...but one is never enough ...it is never enough.

    Did you know 1 out of 2 households in Australia contains a packet of Timtams?

    Interesting looking, glad we do not have them. We already have enough!

    Great trip review. Looked like fun. Thanks!

    Beautiful place... and so close to home! Thanks for sharing the views and the mountain with us.

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Thanks nothermark & loki,
    I hadn't been back there for ages & I'd forgotten how steep the climb in really is.
    Your right the views are worth it.
