It was hard to leave the comfort of our king bed at the Quality Hotel Siesta in Albury, but somehow Dan managed to pull himself out of bed at 4 AM. It took about 45 minutes to drive out to the Mt Pilot car park in Mt Pilot National Park. Well actually it took a little longer as you need to drive slowly around this time of day – this is when the kangaroos are out in force.
It wasn’t too hard to get all the camera gear up the mountain, it is only about a 350 metre walk from the car park to the summit.
We wrote all about Mt Pilot, and the surrounding area (don’t miss the brewery in Beechworth) in our post about the area.
