Lovely trees and grass made it into a ribbon of green, keeping us safely away from the "nasty" traffic. Alas, too soon we were back on the road, but it had been a lovely respite. We see a Bunnings store - didn't even know they had set up that far east of Perth. As we head out, we see a sign pointing to ...

      The next morning we thought the weather was really out to get us, when we woke up to heavy rain which turned to snowy, slushy precipitation. At this point we were very glad to have taken a hostel for the night rather than camp in our tent! Heading out for a hike in such conditions was less than appealing; even with a hut to sleep in we would’ve gotten completely soaked on the ...

The trail down this face of Little Mt Rintoul is extremely tough. The rocks and gravel move with your feet and it is difficult to find solid ground. This continues 300 meters down before the trail demands that you climb back up the aforementioned mountain's big brother. This climb is a struggle. The ...

      ... The full trucks pulled the empty trucks back up the hill, provided the rope didn't break or the trucks come unhitched! With the trucks weighing 12 tons each loaded and reaching speeds of 50 mph and if you wanted to go to or leave from the town they built at the top for the miners and families you hitched a ride on the trucks, literally hung on, makes the Big One at Blackpool look a bit tame, or walked by the side of the track.

      ... so the weather had become foggy and a little cold. So, we walked a little way along the ridge, before heading back and starting the descent. We found a pretty spot to have our packed lunch (steak sandwiches for Mr H, and veggie sausage sarnies for me) and then continued to work our way down the mountainside. A lovely but difficult walk, and we rewarded ourselves with tea and ginger cake back at the Lodge. (Yes, we ...
