The polished track can be seen from the moon
..but not on GE.
The track certainly looks a lot bigger from the air. Great shot!
I am really glad you are enjoying these photos of SE Queensland, Fritz. Thanks for your encouragement.
A flying squirrel; an amazing piece of geology!
All the best from England, Peter
Greetings Peter. One of the volcanic plugs, your countryman, James Cook, though looked like the bottle kilns of Starffycher (Staffordshire) and so called them the Glasshouse Mountains as he sailed by in 1770.
I am intending to climb the east face with the guidance of Yoorala and we will then descend this back track... come some fine cool weather.
I will look forward to the pictures.
Methinks that I may be able to get up there, but the knees would not get me back down!
Best wishes Peter
Hi Ian, enjoy the climb! Fritz
Often the descent of the tourist track can be very dangerous due the large amount of rocks trundled above you by tourists. Rapping off the eastern face is quick, safer and far more spectacular.
Now there you are, Peter. Yoorala has solved your problem - use the ropes to get down!
I am looking forward to it, though when I think about one piece of the climb near the summit, I admit to there being some nervousness. I am sure I can do it with Yoorala's experience and care.
I am not sure I need to take a camera on the climb, for the aerials will satisfy me.
Thanks for the encouragement, Fritz and Peter.
