We had our first glimpse of the Glass House Mountains sailing south from Mooloolaba to Scarborough. Ancient lava plugs that rise up to 556 meters above the surrounding landscape, the Glass House Mountains stand like sentries guarding dry land when seen from the water. Up close, the 11 peeks revealed their distinct shapes and landscapes, some home orchards or conifer farms, others wild with eucalyptus and spring flowers in bloom.
Check out those clouds! Summer was fast upon us while we picking the best day to go hiking. Avoiding the heat was our absolute top priority, followed closely by avoiding thunderstorms. We got lucky, finding day that with cloud coverage that was also rain free.
