Ascent Trip Report

After 12 peaks in 4 days, I started out to try this one. Some days, you just don't have it! This hike is at least 6 miles each way, with a 1500-foot altitude gain. It looked like a beautiful, open peak -- but I was worn out, and only spent an hour or so before deciding to turn around. I did see several kangaroos grazing in a field while I was driving up to the Guthega Power Station where the trail begins, and a 3-foot-high black kangaroo hopped across my path before I turned around. Later someone told me that was a wallaby (small species of kangaroo).
