Kosciuszko

Recently went to climb (a generous word) Mountt Kosciuszko and took a few pictures along the way.  At 2228m, Mount Kosciuszko is Australia’s highest mainland peak, quite small really, but still it is the largest Mountain you can easily climb in Australia territory.  The two other taller Mountains, are way south towards the Antarctic.

On the flight from Canberra to Adelaide (Mount Kosciuszko is around 2 hours drive from Canberra), the flight attendant asked me what I had been doing.  I mentioned walking to the top of Kosciuszko from Thredbo.  She replied, ‘Oh.. I think I have heard of that, is it near Canberra?’  I mentioned it was Australia’s highest mountain, she looked puzzled.
