Yesterday we had planned to hike Mt. Coolum. Unfortunately the rain set us back :( They cancelled it officially on the site and rescheduled for next week. I thought we weren't going then at the last minute we got invited with a smaller group to give it a go anyway! :) Yay! So Katja and I were in! I am so glad we went it was so great! The sunset was amazing!
Mount Coolum was created about 26 million years ago. It formed when a dome-shaped bulge of magma cooled below the Earth’s surface.
It is about an 800 meter (about a half a mile) trek up the mountain. It starts out really tame with stones shaped into steps. Then it gets a bit more difficult with the rocks but overall it is not bad. It only took us about 30 minutes to walk it.
At one point the clods rolled in and surrounded us. I felt like we were sitting in a cloud. How cool!
