About The Cape To Cape: October 24th-28th
The Cape To Cape Track is an 84mi trail that runs along the southwest coast of Australia between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. A picturesque hike that has a wide range of terrain from beautiful coastal beaches, to clifftop views, and inland forests. I got amazing weather on this hike and really enjoyed it. Again, I was able to find solitude yet be near civilization with plenty of facilities if need be. There was a lot of sand slogging involved, but all was worth it for 4 grand days along the beautiful Western Australia Coast. Sunsets on the ocean, whales, kangaroos, and a variety of camping options. Many take 5-8 days for this trip to really soak it in and do it in a more relaxed fashion. Such a great experience!

I gave myself the last handful of days off from blogging as I wrapped up my time in Australia and prepared for the Te Araroa in New Zealand. I had a few people message me about missing the blog entries, but it was pretty glorious on my end to get a break from that...
