Life of Ridges

At the opening of Walking Country: a photographic journey on Friday 21 September, long-standing member and treasurer for over 20 years (and still counting) Ernie Richards was awarded life membership.

Peter Nowak, who first met Ernie in 1986, penned a glowing tribute for the man who loves shortcuts and ridge walking. Read it here:

Life for ERNIE

Now in his 70s, Ernie is still getting out on the trail and pounding out the kilometres, in Central Australia, Nepal and New Zealand.

    I greatly appreciated the hommage “life for Ernie” posted on this page . Especialy the sentence “Ernie has given so generously of his time, knowledge and possessions so that others can experience the magnificence of our region” is exactly matching my experience when I met him in Alice Springs in April 2013. After a short e-mail contact he picked me up from the Airport and next day we made a delightful tour to Simpsons Gap in the MacDonnell Ranges. I was also inspired by him to make a bicycle tour on the track from Flynns Grave to Simpsons Gap. Overall, together with the Pioneer Pass Club walk one of my greatest expierience visiting Australia.
