Bibbulmun Track

This is the local version of home's Bruce Trail. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bibbulmun_Track. It is named for the local indigenous people http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bibbulmun

Got up bright and early Sunday morning and headed for the hills. The Darling Range, that is.

Track Info

Honest... we did see the sun rise on the way there...

Head of the trail

Sullivan Rock - killer intro to the Bibbulmun Track!

On the Track - pretty gentle all the way.

The Waugil (read woggle) marks the trail. Outer layer of bark is charcoal on all area trees that aren't brand new since previous bushfire.

Mt. Cooke "Base Camp" - 6 km in. Feet draggin a bit by this point! Rare occurence: cousin Terri, foreground, shows up in a photographic image ;)

High fashion in trail gear: snake gaiters "say kneees"

Highest peak in Darling Range, Mt. Cooke, elev 528m. Nap time.
Where there's no good spot for the waugil, look for a cairn instead.

At the Peak

Looking back the way we came...
