I had my 66th birthday last Monday and what a great day!
Another birthday - another walking track!
Donna & I had walked down across the Paperbark Crossing and along the Wallaby Trail.
Half way along the Wallaby Trail there are some lovely rocks before you get to the seats near Pig Rock.
This is now the entrance to the path that takes you in to The Fortress!
The large boulders of the Fortress are in Cannon Creek Gorge.
They are seen when you enter the Gorge from behind the dam.
But you can't get across to them.
For my birthday, I couldn't think of a better thing to do than be in the bush.
I was excited about working on the new path that winds through boulders and flannel flowers into the Fortress.
Being the official photographer and as it was my birthday, someone had to do the work!
The track takes you in 108 metres and is a lovely, easy winding trail.
There are some lovely rocks to find shapes in and gradually the tale of the Fortress started to develop.
Smoko in the bush is always the greatest experience!
Just love it and the surroundings are exceptional.
Donna was rewarded for her hard work.
This beauty was picked up on the top of the sand at the Paperbark Crossing.
Other nice finds while out & about include:
We are also continuing to work on the Buddhas in the Bush.
We are developing a sitting area at a spot we call the Kissing Tree.
The Kissing Tree is along the track from St Bernard Rock that takes you to the Top Crossing.
A closer view shows you why it is called the Kissing Tree.
The tree has grown against the large boulder as if kissing the stone.
It is just another nice area along the walk.
Other activities that keep us healthy & happy.
See you soon at Earth & Soul.
Regards... Mark & Donna
