Pie and Slide Night – Australia 2005

11 05 2009

Along the lines of Kate’s Post about the past I thought it would be fun to put some old photos online from my semester abroad in Australia.

While I was studying at the University of Melbourne I was a member of the Melbourne Uni Mountaineering Club and through this club I was able to find climbing partners, arrange rides, and get outside the majority of the weekends I was in Australia. One of the annual events was a Pie and Slide night at a local pub and thinking highly of my self I entered photos in many categories.

Looking back these are not top notch photos but at the time with my Sony point and shoot I was happy to be recording memories. There are so many beautiful places in Australia and the rock is absolutely stunning. As I dig through old photos I hope to get some more posts about my travels down under.

Enjoy!!

The Watchtower Faces reminds me of Quartz Mountain in Oklahoma with the farmland in the background. Only Quartz Mtn. is granite, that looks like sandstone. Looks like loads of fun though.
