    Took a couple of extra days to make the Australia Day Long weekend a 5 day stay at Thredbo Diggings.

    Weather was fine and hot with temperatures dropping once the sun went down.

    On Saturday K10, M10, Cranky Pants and I walked to Kosciuszko from Thredbo

    [​IMG]

    It was cool and quite windy but clear and sunny giving good views of the Main Range and Victoria

    Still a bit of snow up there too.

    On Monday. M10 and Cranky Pants and I caught the chair to the top then walked the Merritts Traverse

    [​IMG]

    Very pretty at the top and really funny seeing all the places you ski in the resort without snow.

    The end of the walk was a steep road from Merritts which was actually harder than the uphill from Antons to the Gun Barrel.

    When we weren’t walking, K10 was mountain biking with Telecrag while M10 and CrankyPants rode around the Diggings on their bikes, played with their new friends, swam in the river and discovered wombat holes.
