First stop was Crackenback Ski resort. It was like a big park with a lake and buildings scattered around the lake like a village. In summer it is full of guests who like hiking and mountain bike riding. There was a new little family of ducks on the lake.
It was New Year's Day and we were lucky to find a coffee shop open in Thredbo Village. The last time I was here it was covered in snow.
The gap in the trees is where the chair lift takes you to the top, from there you walk 6k to the top of Mt Kosciuszko or in winter ski down the many runs that are available. But no hiking for me anymore on this trip.

Charlottes Pass Ski Resort the lifts are behind me.
Looking back from where we came

It is sad to see.
The next day the family walked to the summit of Kosciuszko while I nursed my painful, swollen multicoloured, foot.
