Climbing Mt Ngungun

The Woody Family Climbed Mt Ngungun

On Sunday 27th June two of our Woody Boys, Dad and Me (Mum) climbed Mt Ngungun at the Glasshouse Mountains for my birthday fun 🙂 It’s not our first time to climb the Mountain, but is the first time I remembered the video camera.

Here is how baby woody is so very cheeky, and such a mountain goat!

I love School holidays, it gives us so much time to experience what we love to do……walking.

What are your favorite holiday outings?

Cheers

Lisa Wood from Woody Boys.

Climbing Mt Beerburrum

Yesterday I was mad enough to say “Yes, lets climb Mt Beerburrum”!!! Its not a big climb by any means, but gee is it steep….

The walk goes fairly quickly, with a few “drink stops” along the way. Actually its the boys that keep me going…I would stop to take photos but the boys were keen to reach the top. I must say that the view at the top is worth the STEEP walk……

 When we got to the tower, it was very windy, so for my piece of mind (and the boys safety) I asked them to sit down. They thought it was the perfect time for Fruit Break 🙂

The view is stunning…you are able to walk around the whole tower looking out over Glasshouse Mountains, to further out and even out to the ocean. Its like a dream……

 

Going back down was so much easier…..we ran most of the way down. I sure felt my muscles screaming this morning, letting me know that they had been worked out.

The walk is hard, short but steep. The view on top – takes your breath away. If you are ever near Mt Beerburrum in Queensland – stop on by and get your walking shoes on.

We actually meet an American couple that were climbing the mountain – well the Husband was climbing with his mate from Brisbane, while the wife was at the bottom waiting for him to get back down. The American man was kind enough to let the boys have a look through his “goggles” (as Kyle calls them) – his binoculars. They must have cost a few pennies because when the boys held it up to their eyes they all stepped back……the view from the mans binoculars brought it all so close the boys thought the trees were going to hit them!!! Wished I thought to take a photo of their faces, priceless…..

So after walking up Mt Beerburrum yesterday, I thought I would take the younger two Woody Boys for a bike ride today.

I walked while they rode to the local football field. Which is a fair distance from our house…Yep – I am sure pushing my body limits this weekend. I had a theory behind all my madness, To Wear the boys out.

It WORKED!!! They were all in bed by 7.15pm tonight and asleep by 7.30pm – how will I pull up tomorrow? Well that is another story….  🙂

How was your weekend spent?

Climbing Mt Ngungun

Bush Walking…..Well Actually it was more like Mountain Climbing, Climbing Mt Ngungun!!

On Sunday just gone a great friend Sabine invited our family out for a fun easy bush walk:)

Hubby David was to busy to go so it was down to me, Zachery and Nicholas. Then Zac being a typical 13 year old (almost 14) decided that he was so NOT getting up early on a Sunday to get out of bed and go for a bush walk.

Then there was two…just myself and Nicholas, the only Woodys interested in going.  We meet with Sabine, Pam and Pam’s Husband Geoff and another wonderful friend of Sabine’s.

At The Bottom!!

We meet at the bottom of Mt Ngun Ngun around 8:00am (I think I was a little bit late….as usual!!). I was nervous going on the walk as I had not been on a bush walk for a very long time, and the last Mountain Climb I had done was 15 years ago!!

Nicholas being Nic…..found it so very easy:)

He was the first to the top and the first to the bottom!!

Here is the most amazing views ever

Mt Ngun Ngun...amazing place

Nic thinking that was SOO easy!!

Nicholas was just amazingly quick getting up and getting down…..

He had the best time and now wants to go every Sunday with three Mountains each and every day….

We ended up climbing two mountains and then set off for Lunch at the Glass House Mountains lookout.

Nicholas and I (well alright me!!) decided not to do the third Mountain for the day….I had a really good reason…I needed to pick up the oldest Woody from Army Cadets! (that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it)

Thanks Sabine!!

Cheers to Staying Healthy on the inside and on the outside.

Till our next big climb….
