To The Top Of Mt. Ainslie

Yesterday, I took a fun jog to the top of Mt Ainslie. See, this is exactly what I'm talking about when I say Canberra is the most under rated city in the world. Not quite sure how I would get to the top of the mountain, I started jogging towards it. When I got to the base of the mountain, behind the top notch War Memorial, I learned there was a trail to the top.

Not only is it a well maintained trail with excellent views, but they also have plaques along the way to remember various engagements in WW II. Add to this the fact that I ran by a family of kangaroos, and I have to say, this was one terrific experience.

Here are some photos:

So here's my recommendation: If you do make it to Canberra, the first thing you should do is visit the War Memorial, and then make your way up the trail in the back for a spectacular view.
