Welcome respite on a hard climb

I’ve overdoing the discussions a bit but we go to Hobart, Tasmania, tomorrow and I may not be on myLot for a few days. While climbing to a lookout above Wineglass Bay, we came across some lovely natural seats, most of which I took advantage of. It was good to sit for a while till my heart stopped thumping and I caught my breath. In the meantime a little girl of about four skipped past me and ran up the slope with her mother panting along behind. Oh, to be young and have that much energy. Two of the photos show two of the seats. The one that looks like a sunbed was designed and made by architectural students. Some of the stonework over watercourses caught my eye and the fourth photo shows a typical section of the path, most of which was either a sandy track or stone steps.

The last climb I did was in New Zealand. Getting down was difficult. In the good old days one saw tiny platforms built of stone along several roads and this was to offload what was being carried - kind of a break They rested there and lifted the load once again for their onward journey

I agree. I wish I had the energy of a four-year-old right now. Those benches are interesting and the one designed by architectural students looks inviting. Very nice pictures, but my favorite would be the path with the stone steps.
Looks like out of this world. I recall climbing Mount Bromo, in East Java, Indonesia and I felt I was not on this planet! At least, you are still climbing. going places; I may give it a pass now. This reminds me also of The Three Sisters Footpath in Sydney that I visited in 2003 - siva
