  1. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Cameras these days are pretty good at taking photos. Really peoples, do you think that Daniel could take these? Aaaahhhhh, just for laughs – good job Daniel!

  2. Great photos……and great landscapes to work with! I used to live at Mt Samson, even managed to get lost on a climb to the top ( note to self – must use that story on my blog one day).
    You had wonderful weather for your Mt Barney climb – and what a view!!!

    1. Yeah I think the Mt Mee/Mt Glorious area is largely an undiscovered gem to most people. Everyone is too focused on the sunny coast and gold coast. And yeah Mt Barney weather was brilliant.

  3. I have to return everyone’s attention to the first picture in this set. It would have to be for sure the best photo of me known to man! But the second one of Kelly is the best of them all.

  4. As a follower of this blog I would expect that my recommendations with regards to the betterment of ‘Adventurous Trips’ would be recognised and acted upon – and promptly. My formal request is as follows; update photos on this page. Without consistently adding photos [of Canada] implies that thephoto’s which you are taking lean towards the lesser side of perfect. No hard feelings meant may I add.

  5. Can I make another formal recommendation. All hear this: to make ‘Snap’s’ more viewable, the most recent snaps should be at the top of the screen. I know that you may have difficulty in comprehending the benefits which this change will have however trust is the key ingredient in this decision. The changes will reap rewards.
