Putting A Face To The Name – Mount Agung

 

She is an old girl.  She is the Old Girl.  She is over 3000m high.  That’s nearly a kilometre higher than Australia’s biggest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko, and about two kilometres than Western Australia’s biggest peak, Bluff Knoll.

In my discussion on 6PR’s Perth Tonight with Chris Ilsley, we discussed my fears in climbing this volcano (twice!) and the view from the top and just what it means for Mount Agung to be a member of the Ring of Fire.

In the picture above, I have reached the summit and the pyramid shape you can see is the shadow of Mt Agung projected onto the clouds and ground below.
