This land was made for you and me

An alpine club trip to Commonwealth Peak. It was supposed to be for Tuesday but at 7.30 am it looked so grey and overcast we delayed it until Thursday which turned out to be a beautiful day. Carl, Cliffton, Marg and I jumped on our mountain bikes at the Burstal Pass carpark and cycled about 3 klicks then stomped through the bog. Here we are changing our foot wear. Very Civilised. That is the Roberston Glacier in the background.

Before we knew it we were at the top. Marg and I are yogi's extraordinaire and know all about levitating. Actually we slogged up a lot of scree but here we are on the summit ridge.

Cliffton concentrating - this was not a place to fall or trip. Well that is if you want to keep on living.

Me with the French and Robertson Glaciers to the left.

Marg could not be persuaded to pose in the tube! Still it looks like the eye of a dolphin.

Prehistoric dinosaur skelton or maybe it was just a poor ground squirrel that fell off the summit ridge.

It's those eyes again except this time they are winking! And please note that they have changed colour - enlightened transformation.

Yikes it's bear country afterall. Just as well we never actually saw this one. Note the bear bells!

Marg after cooling off on the crossing the bog (I am Scottish - I know a bog when I see one!)

Found the bikes they were not eaten by any strange porqupine or stolen by a human. 
Thanks for a fantastic day and my knees did not even complain - must have been all the levitating. Yeah for yoga.
