4 PEAKS CHALLENGE REPORT ... what a fabulous day was had by all 43 signed up participants .. plus a few extra .. who met at the base of Mt Leura at 9.45am for what will become an annual event for the Friends of Mt Leura. We would like to thanks all those who participated whether they conquered all four peaks or just the ones they had the time or energy to conquer. Some came long distances .... some came training for the Kokoda Track .... for many it was their first visit to at least one of our chosen peaks. The sun eventually came out early afternoon but it was perfect walking weather all day. Finally our thanks to Val and Chris Lang for opening up Mt Elephant early for us. I have included a few photos from the day. Graham Arkinstall on behalf of the organising team ... thanks Fran, John, Becky and Belinda ... See MoreSee Less
