DOWN THE SLOPES with packs
Overlooking Brisbane is Mt Cootha a small range which links up with the Aguilar Ranges of the Brisbane Forest Park. Three large TV towers and stations have been part of the Brisbane skyline for 50years.
It has also some good walking tracks about 15 minutes from the city centre.
From the Western side there are a number of tracks dropping steeply into the valley. One track has been renamed in recent years the Kokoda Track in memory of the infamous and legendary World War II New Guinea Track on which the advancing Japanese Army was defeated.
It is a good fitness track and we were fully packed again in a brief Sunday walk up and down the nearby Jacksonia Track. At last we are getting used to the packs and getting the weights down as far as possible.
Not long to go now.
