Mt Wellington is fantastic. I will never stop loving it. Two weeks ago, while Jon was doing his own run on the mountain, I walked from the waterfalls at Ferntree up through the snow to the summit - past a steady succession of soon-to-be-hypothermic-ill-prepared-tourists.
And just last weekend I was up there with Clare, there wasn't any snow and we were in T-shirts. The views were fantastic and we could see all the way to the peaks of the south west. I've said it before but I love how you can walk from waterfalls to alpine & sub-alpine terrain from just a short drive from home.
So as a general instruction to the universe, I think I'd like my ashes to be spread on the mountain (not too high up though, maybe from Sphinx Rock - just check there's no-one below it before you do it). Then I can be forever in this lovely place and I can also keep my eye on all of you.
