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.

Bush Walking

Our Gorgeous Walk To Mt Ngungun

Yesterday was such a perfect day – sunny but not too hot. So much so that I dragged hubby out of the house and our three younger Woody Boys to go for a Bush Walk upto Mt Ngungun.

Here are some of the photos of the most amazing place on earth 🙂

The view on top of Mt Ngungun is stunning….we can actually see our house from sitting on a rock at the top of the mountain…

This is woodys house!!

I zoomed in to capture our house from the peak of Mt gungun. I was amazed that sitting up there and looking down – how many houses are now in Glasshouse Mountains.

To think that over a year ago I sat up on that very spot and said to Nicholas “Gosh its beautiful up here, I wished we lived at Glasshouse Mountains” – and then it came true. So be very careful what you wish for…the Universe provides every single time!!

I love Bush Walking and am so looking forward to when Woodys House hits the road in our new bus, and we get to see Australia.

How was your weekend best spent?

Climbing Mt Ngungun At The Glass House Mountains

Taking Two Woody Boys Up To Mt Ngungun…

After walking around and seeing all there is to see at Eumundi Markets, for quite some time this morning with a great friend, I decided to be very crazy and head up to Mt Ngungun at the glass house Mountains.

Seen as how we live right in front of the mountain, and I mean that – we are with walking distance from the base of the Mountain –  I decided to brave the weather conditions, the mosquitoes (they are so very bad at the moment) and take two of our woody boys with me.

As soon as they unpacked their bags, got changed out of there uniforms we headed off on foot. Within minutes of getting down the road it looked like it was going to bucket down, it even started to sprinkle. But I was determined to get my exercise today, and spend some quality time with Nicholas and Cameron.

We forgot to spray with insect repellent – oops – will remember next time, so they were having a great feast on all three of us.

Considering Cameron is only 8 years old we didn’t do to bad….He could easily keep up with me, and even at one stage I had to tell him to slow down.

Nicholas being the billy goat that he is, was way ahead of us. I think that I posted that last time we went up to Mt Ngungun how quick he was 🙂

Me being that much older took a bit more time, but I was very happy with myself. This time I could walk up without stopping, and that’s amazing because we almost made it to the top. The only reason we did not keep going was because it was getting late, and the clouds were starting to come in really dark. I was also a bit concerned – if it got dark, there was no street lights and all three of us did not think about a torch.

All in All it was a fantastic way to spend our afternoon, taking up a fair bit of time. I think the boys are keen to go back again which is good because I forgot to take our camera and I really want to take a photo of their smiling faces as they climb. They both were very proud of themselves and so they should be – its not a very hard climb but its also no picnic. It uses muscles that they have not used before, so tomorrow will be interesting!

Wonder how many I times I will hear in the morning –  “I am too sore to walk to school, I am too sore to get out of bed, I am too sore to get my bag packed – so can I stay home?” 🙂

What A Climb Mt Ngungun Is

A great way to end a Great day.

Looking forward to making it all the way to the top once again, and kick my butt if I forget the camera again 🙂

How did you spend your day?

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….
