Climbing in the Glasshouse Mountains again

Before we left the Sunshine Coast this year, Andrew took a day trip back to the Glasshouse Mountains.  This time, he set out to climb Mt Beerwah, the highest and most difficult of the Glasshouse Mountains which can be done without climbing equipment. On the way he took the track to the top of Mt Ngungun and got a view of Mt Coonowrin and Mt Beerwah.

The climb up Mt Beerwah is around the back in this photo.

Mt Tibrogargan and Mt Beerburrum from Mt Ngungun.

Mt Beerwah. The climb starts on bare slab and then goes up the bare gully to the base of the cliffs. It turns right along the cliff base and then ascends around the back of this view

View from the top. Coonowrin and Ngungun on left and Tibrogargan and Beerburrum on the right in the distance.

Andrew goes horse riding

We made a return visit to the Mooloolah Valley farm for lunch.  Marnee took Andrew for a little horse ride.  Instead of feeding the horses, they rode them.

Marnee was riding Darby and Andrew was riding Max.

The woman mounting.

After that the battery was flat and that is all I was able to capture.  But off they went to ride off at a steady pace.  Well walking but it was on horse-back.
