I spent New Year's in the Grampians and managed a very short and simple walk to a lookout called the Balconies.
I'm a lot more buggered today than I thought I would be. I forgot that the property we stayed at was so hilly. I think that's what tired me out, mostly.
Still, I was grateful that I even managed the walk; and I was even more grateful there were people there who purposely chose a walk that I'd manage.
This time last year I could barely walk, so even if I did struggle with a simple walk in the Grampians, that's a huge improvement from last year! Happy new year, everyone; hope 2009 is a better year for all of us.
