Track Notes

There is always a great view from Mt Painter, whether by day or night.

Great to see that this relatively new walk leader (for CBC) is attracting a good turnout. Today's crowd included a returning-after-a-long-absence previous member and a visitor who had her membership endorsed and will join via the web. Also many of the scurrilous crew of trig and leader baggers; and many who just enjoy a pleasant after-work stroll.

A lovely stroll on a fabulous Canberra evening to uninterrupted views over much of Canberra. Then down off the E side of the hill and over the Cook Horse Paddocks. N-ish to cross the bike path and back via a bit of the Wybalena ridge.

Short and sweet.
