For the first time since April 2012 I’ve climbed Mt Taylor. This is a major achievement for me post knee replacement. I knew I would have some places to stop and rest along the track so I took my small sketchbook to make some drawings on the way.
To my surprise and delight I made it up to the top of the mountain. There are wonderful views over most of Canberra from this spot.
What I was most interested in was the change of perspective from this height. Looking across to major landmarks with a very different horizon line from that at the bottom of the mountain.
It was a great walk. I found going back down was far harder on my knees than climbing up, but I was happy that I had made the effort.
