We are currently in Ayers Rock, Australia, held hostage by scorching hot weather alternating with unusual downpours.  You would think we’ve offended the Aboriginal gods!  Our stargazing expedition was cancelled, and while I’d love to upload some new photos this computer isn’t equipped for it.

C’est la vie.  Here’s another video from our hike of the Routeburn Trek, this one showing some of the views at the top of Conical Hill.  This was an optional extra hike, which included some snow and steep rocks.  I am told Sir Edmund Hillary considers it a fantastic peak.  Who needs Everest?
