Wogonga Inlet to Canberra

Day 15: May 21st

The number of landscape changes we have travelled through today leaves me feeling that today was perhaps the most exciting, thrilling and spectacular day yet.

Day 15-1

Heading inland

 

 

A small trail into the mountains through private property. Thanks for letting us through...but not again :P

The trails were challenging to just the right degree. I could not have asked for better.

Day 15-4

Looking North, high up indeed and yet so close to the coast. The trees were less than 3m in places at the top on the north end

One of the many forest type changes in very few miles

Day 15-12

After getting through the mountains we travelled North through rolling pasture country toward Braidwood.

Day 15-13

Out of the woods

 

It was getting late, already past our usual camp setup time of 4pm. The light was fantastic but soon faded leaving us to do the last miles in the dark.

Although it was only 6:30pm when we arrived at my old friend James Anderson’s place, it felt much later.

The season has definitely turned. It is very cold and the days short.

Boy, was the hot soup welcome when we arrived! Thanks James.

After a great game of Cyclades (that James won) we turned in, thoroughly tuckered out.

    Loved the creek crossing video when it eventually loaded but it took forever. Maybe they don’t need to be HD.

    That was a fantastic Snow Gum (E pauciflora) in the afternoon light

    Also all the posts are not showing on the side bar if you can manage to fix that
