Cape Arid National Park Mt Ragged
Australia

For those who were drawn to this panorama by my note in the logbook at the top of Mt Ragged, thanks for visiting.

For everybody else: Mt Ragged is an isolated peak in the Cape Arid National Park, which can be accessed from the North - which is probably reccommended option, or South West - if you have 4WD vehicle. But be warned! The track is very rough and you are likely to encounter everything that off-roading can offer: loose sand, mud puddles, corrugations, and of course rocks - kilometers  and kilometers of sharp rocks! That's a real test for your 4WD car!!!

Once you eventually get there, you are welcomed by a sign warning against bee swarms and nests in the rock crevices. So yes, I do not reccommed wandering around off the trail, because you may get (unpleasantly) surprised.

The climb is fairly easy, although steep at places, but I found notes in the logbook from people aging between 7 and over 70 ;) but the summit rewards with beautiful 360-degrees view to the vastness of the National Park.

More About Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria. We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in! Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth. The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party. This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality. The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself! Text by Steve Smith.
