In an endeavour to get fit I have started running with Molly over the Christmas holidays. We are trying to do 3 to 6 km’s every two days but for something different on Christmas Eve I took both Molly and Emily up to Mt Buffalo to run a few of the hiking tracks. It also gave me a chance to take the new Jeep for a drive up the mountain.
Our first jog was a moderate 1.5km through Ladies Bath Falls to Lower Eurobin Falls and back. The girls stopped on the way back for a quick cleanse in the cool fresh water while I waited on a bridge watching a small trout play in the water.
Our second jog was a more challenging 2.4km rocky track to Marriotts Lookout. Emily didn’t enjoy the cliffs and rocks and so was a fair bit slower than Molly and myself. But the view at the end of the cliff faces was worth it.
For our third jog we drove as far as we could to The Horn car park. The Horn Summit is the highest part of Mt Buffalo and so from the car park we had a 1.5 km uphill jog to spectacular views.
Our final jog was around the 1.7km Chalwell Galleries loop. This was an amazing rock formation which are a jumble of large granite rocks forming impressive passages.
We finished a great morning jogging Mt Buffalo with an Aussie Lunch in Myrtleford – stopping into a cafe for Em to have a sausage roll and Molly a meat pie. Not the healthiest lunch after a physical morning.
