Another early start at 6am!  We made our way to the Stirling Ranges National Park.  Why not start out with a little exercise - climbing Mt. Trio.  It was pretty much straight up hill for an hour.  I was swearing almost the whole way up but the views from the top were amazing and definitely worth it.  The way down was slippery shale and giant steps.  I was luckily one of the first ones down.  The tour guide didn't wait for people and there were quite a few accidents (a guy took out his knee, another fell down the side and lost her Prada sunnies...) we were waiting at the bottom for the rest of the group to arrive for about an hour.  I think some unfit people were a bit pissed as we weren't really warned about the level of difficulty and we didn't really hike as a group.  We ate lunch at Bluff's Knoll and then took a pretty boring and uneventful drive to Esperance.  The 2 local pubs had Karaoke on that night and a free drink for every song!  So we had to partake in that.  I of course didn't do any individual songs and saved everyone's ears but was a member of the famous group songs "girls just wanna have fun"...  Good times
