Some places just feel... Ancient.  Coming across this giant as we descended a steep scree slope into camp yesterday made me feel that maybe there are still some places which continue to march on as they always have.  Oblivious to us. To all our hurry and ambition.  That's a comforting thought for me. 
Also, I saw two bears!!! 🐻 Scary,  but also pretty awesome.

A little battered and bruised after our first full day on the trail.  But it's hard to argue with views like this.  @rowanlaramoses

And the sun sets on our first day on the trail. Six kilometres walked,  one dinner demolished, two food bags hung. A couple of happy campers.

You know you're destined for success when your journey to the trail head starts with a ride in the new Tesla model 3. Although,  the contrast of this first leg against the crowded,  vaguely urine smelling greyhound bus we're currently enjoying for the next six hours does temper the excitement a little.  Thanks so much to our Aussie hosts,  Bonnie and Emma for making us feel at home these last few days in their cabin in the Californian redwoods.  To the trail!

After a few frantic days of final preparation we are finally ready to take our first steps tomorrow.  Here's everything that I will be wearing and carrying for the next 5 months!

Descending into the darkness as we followed a scree slope into the mist, hoping that at the end we would find our sanctuary for the night and not an untraversable precipice.  Sometimes you can't know what lies ahead. All you can do is have faith and keep putting one foot ahead of the other. [pc] @mowgli_tesla

Setting off on the journey of a lifetime tomorrow. Flashback to a grand trip through New Zealand with my dear friend @mowgli_tesla [PC]. New backpack on my back.  New mountains on the horizon,  but the same feeling of freedom starting to creep up on me.

Flashback to one of my first big hiking trips in Nepal.  Standing at over 4000m with the Himalayas still towering above me.  Can't wait to be back out in the mountains again. [PC- @mowgli_tesla] .

And this bloke reckons he isn't photogenic! Laughing through the pain as we climb the never-ending staircase.

More views from our walk yesterday, not a bad spot for a swim either.  #hikingadventures #crystalwaters #sunsoutthighsout #bouddinationalpark
A perfect day spent exploring the stunning central coast with @mowgli_tesla. #hikingadventures #bouddinationalpark #sunsoutthighsout
Cycling is walking right? Sketchy bike adventures with @kirrenthompson . #centralcoast #cyclingadventures #thisisabikelaneright?
Not the worst place to spend an afternoon working.  #hikingadventures #southcoastnsw #froggingitup
The upside of catching frogs all night is mornings spent here. Strolling down the beach is still hiking right? #jervisbay #shirtlessselfie #beachstroll
The views are better from up here! Enjoying a day off exploring with @mowgli_tesla #watagans #hikingadventures #treehouselife
