Just got back from a 5 day hike in Kosciuszko National Park in Australia. Total distance walked was over 100kms, but I had to escourt a trip-mate who hosed his knees up so we pulled out halfway. Didn't get to tag Mt. Jugungle or the Sentinel, but I have been up Kozzie plenty of times.







You can see the extensive fire damage in the second pic - this was from 2001 I think, though it may have been 2003 when 300 homes were destroyed in my city. Some of the trails have been completely destroyed by emerging saplings, which are just large enough to make bush bashing almost impossible. We were walking at 200m/h for some of this walk.

I'll be in the US for a couple of weeks from January 14. We are planning to spend a few days each at Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Sequoia and Death Valley national parks amongst other things. Although the weather will probably be not great and we'll be travelling primarily by car, are there any tricks to visiting these?

Anyone have any tips on cooking with aluminium foil? I always feel I should use the fire to cook on as well as to keep warm, but obviously carrying saucepans and poo poo is out of the question. I just prefer to not cook anything too adventurous in the trangia because it takes ages and is usually boiling water in the meantime anyway.
