Mt Sonder – Full Moon?

Date: Sunday 13/07/2014
Weather: Cold and Wet (25mm)
Distance covered 15.8km
Start: Redbank Gorge
Finish: Redbank Gorge via Mt Sonder

Did we mention that it was forecast for rain? Lets put this into perspective. The Milford track in NZ has an average rainfall of just under 600mm during the month of April (The month we were over there). Alice Springs only has an average of less than 16mm for July!

At 4am with headlight torches ablaze (due to a thick cloud cover, there was no sign of our full moon!) we made tracks. Whilst we carried extra clothing and wet weather gear, we had headed off in mild temperatures wearing only a T-shirt and spray jacket.
