Festive Training

There was no peace for the wicked this festive season. What started out as a gentle stroll to combat the effects of a mince pie or two, ended up as a two hour hike. This was followed the next day by a two and a half hour run. I took the opportunity to indulge myself with my camera though. Not my best pics ever, but the hikers (both two-legged and four-legged) were not very patient. Just as well, it may have turned out as a four hour hike.

There was the occasional lift for those whose legs are on the short side……

And lots of rock-climbing for the glutes….

We had fabulous viewpoints for catching our breath…

And, despite the drought and fires, lots of brave little flowers along the way…..
