Living with intent, social engagement, learning, growing, giving
Last week we braved the cold fog to walk Section 1 of the Centenary Trail, from the War Memorial to Mount Majura, up to the summit, then across the saddle and up to the summit of Mount Ainslie and back to the War Memorial. We parked for free at the War Memorial and enjoyed the warmth inside the museum while using the amenities before setting out on our hike.
We turned left at the start of the trail and followed the signs for the Centenary Trail. It was less than 1C so we walked briskly to try to warm up.
We passed a lot of kangaroos lounging around beside the track under the power-lines. With each mob that we encountered, the large males and females stayed where they were and watched us pass while the younger and smaller kangaroos hopped away, becoming separated from the larger adults.
The cloud finally lifted when we reached the base of Mount Majura and we had views of the north of Canberra.
We turned back on the same trail and walked up the steps towards the summit of Mount Majura.
We climbed up to the trigonometry station on the summit of Mount Majura before heading down the trail towards Mount Ainslie and enjoyed views towards Canberra airport.
We swept around to the back of Mount Ainslie, following the signs for the Centenary Trail before beginning our ascent.
We managed to make a nice long walk out of it and it was our first time walking up either mountains. The Centenary Trail is well marked and easy to follow.
This week I got a bit knocked around in my soccer match on Tuesday evening and the weather was bitter so we decided to take a week off bush walking. Instead we went to the gym and then to see the 3D version of Transformers. It was my first time seeing a 3D movie and I was impressed! It was as misogynistic as can be expected from that director but otherwise fairly enjoyable.
