Must keep up with this. At roll call this morning, I noticed a few too many chins yelled "present" during proceedings. Right! I'll have you (s). Better walk up a mountain to keep them in check. A quick check of maps showed that Mt Stromlo had a few geocaches in need of my presence. Parked down at Cotter Rd, after a crisp night, decided I only needed 2 layers up top as there was no wind but also thought my legs might appreciate the protection of gaiters. Was a lovely stroll, met an old codge who I think really wanted me to walk with him but I was aon secret cachers business. Headed up, found my 3 caches, admired the views, and whilst I was trying to spot a different way down the mountain, met one of my fellow COMCAR drivers who is a keen road cyclist and had ridden up the Mt. After a shortish 30 minute chat (he is a morning driver so I don't see him during my shifts), I headed off into the distance. Had to do a bit of cross country to join up with the fire trails which are safer than the MBO routes (for walkers). Tis a lovely hill and it does have great views of the newish Molonglo town centre plus great westerly views of the Brindabellas. A 7.4 km stroll all up!
Bushwalking & Geocaching a match made in heaven.
