Jindi Climbs A Mountain...

The human had been making "we are going on a summer holiday noises" for a few days and finally on Saturday, after much pfaffing about with getting flat tyres fixed and what not, we get in the car and we go for a loooonnnnngggg drive all the way up the road to New South Wales and stay at a place called Yass, then the next day she puts me back in the car (I loooove going for rides in the car) and we go to the ACT to see our friends E, R & I.

E thought it would be fun to go for a walk so we climbed a mountain (only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun? well these two humans are mad and I'm just the dog who gets hauled along for the ride!).

 Here's me at the start...
 Going up a bit of a hill...
 A maggie being sensible and taking a rest in the shade...
 We are up high but not quite there yet...
 At the top!…855 metres - UP!
Whew! Time for a rest…there is a kind "water boy" who keeps bowls and water jugs at the top for canine climbers, I had drinks on the way up but it was good to have a big slurp…

And then we climbed back down, much easier and faster downhill!!

Now we are in the Blue Mountains while the human plays sewing with her friends at Summer School.

Woofs and licks…
Jindi...
