Day 39 | Through Mt Crawford forest: and I discover I am carrying far too much stuff in that BoB

43 km | Heading west total: 1,468 km

I first heard of the Mawson Trail when I was heading up to Canberra before Christmas. The couple were middle-aged and not particularly athletic and had travelled on a supported tour.

At the time I just went ‘Oh, yeah.’

Life can be full of surprises. The Mawson Trail is more physical than I had anticipated, with more unsealed trail. It’s more varied so far and it’s genuinely scenic in these sharply undulating Adelaide Hills.

Just what I wanted, and needed.

Oh, yeah!
