Winter.

We’ve come to our last week at Glen Helen Resort. I’ve moved to the evening shift, and J and I have become a two-woman bar tending and waitressing machine. The matching work schedules also mean lots of morning hikes and picnic lunches in pretty places and hanging out after work with a few beers, playing poker with the boys because no one has to get up a 6a. Which is infinitely more awesome.  Despite these changes for the positive, it’s starting to get cold and we’ve got some tropics to be getting to, and so we must depart.
Adventures that have been had:

Hiking down section 10 of the Larapinta Trail – at 4am in order to see sunrise from the hilltop lookout, then hike back in time for brekkie.

Mark takes C dirt biking for the first time, and she only gets mildly injured!

Another off-trail adventure up the eastern spur of Mt. Sonder. A spectacular spectacular climb, despite the occasional games of marco-polo through thorny thickets.
