Tuesday 7.30 am and the temperature was 10 decrees celsius, with a cool north-westerly wind blowing. A perfect morning for a walk/run on the ridge, work can wait for an hour or so. Mt Arawang at 765 metres is at the southern end of the Coolamon Ridge walk. The access track from the Kambah horse paddocks is steep and a great cardio workout.
Trigs have a cosmic intrigue for me, the symmetry of the structure exposed to the elements. A great space for some meditation and quiet reflection.

Autumn is well and truly here and the cooler morning and afternoons are a perfect snake free time to get out on the trails. I have decided to challenge my self to a winter of trig bagging around Canberra. There are plenty to keep me busy and its a great way to get back on the road to the fitness levels I enjoyed in 2018.
Today I ticked off my first McQuoids Hill, just up the bicentennial Trail from home. Not many birds but some great views across the Tuggeranong Valley.
