Juneathon Day 5: The one with all the climbing.
Otherwise known as a trip to the Cataract Gorge via the Zig Zag track, which is a steep climb of pain trail with a series of…well… zig-zags…and some pretty amazing views.
Throw in a walk across the suspension bridge, more climbing on the way back, and a jog to / from home, and before you know it you’ve clocked up a sneaky 7.5k without even realising.
I did take a few photos just for you guys. Nothing at all to do with needing a rest. Nope, definitely not that.
“Please Take Care – Steep Track” – Yep, they weren’t kidding:
Obligatory selfie. Having a drink…after only 5 minutes of climbing… #totallyfit:
The recently-built viewing platform:
The suspension bridge – and halfway point – taken (bravely) from the platform:
Getting closer to the bridge. A ride on the chairlift will have to wait for another time:
Well hello there! Who’s a pretty boy, then?
Just a little bit further and we’re at the Alexandra Suspension Bridge. It actually swings slightly as you go across:
Over the bridge and heading back – this time along a different winding trail:
Kings Bridge in the distance…
…and we’re done!
Just a short jog home from here.
That was actually pretty fun – I could even be tempted to do it again next week!
