Mt Gillen in the morning

So, after 6 months in Alice Springs I’ve finally undertaken one of the many initiation rituals associated with moving to town. Climbing Mount Gillen.

Now Mt Gillen isn’t a mountain, more of a high point on the range that surrounds Alice Springs. The MacDonnell ranges run east and west from town in a great curving arc.

From the top you get a great view in all directions, and can also enjoy the different climate it experiences. The climate leads to slightly different ecosystems, such as moss that is alive and pine trees.
