Getting high at Mt. Lofty

In Adelaide, one really does not have to travel far to have fun. Mt. Lofty is only a 40-minute drive from the CBD and yet it presents a beautiful perspective of Adelaide--the highest one!

Yes, Mt. Lofty is the highest point where you can actually see the CBD. In fact, we were able to see the coast and the airport from that point.

It was not easy taking photos as I do not have my lens filter yet and it is still the height of winter here. I took photos of the very tame birds and some of the tourists.

It was also Steven's first time to be there so both of us were surprised that Mt. Lofty has a walking trail. We will definitely go back there when the weather is a bit warmer.
We also discovered this summit has a huge botanical garden. Despite the cold, a few of the plants were able to produce the most beautiful blooms and the most enticing scents. I was inspired to take a lot of photos in between bouts of drizzle.

You will see more Mt. Lofty photos here in spring!
