We have it cold, gray, and drizzly here today, a rather typical winters day. With the forecast promising a lift in the cloud and rain for a few hours across the afternoon, we made the decision to go for a bush walk up to the Organ Pipes and Buttars Peak. As it worked out the forecast was completely wrong, and the cloud did not lift at all. We walked through a fairly steady constant drizzle, and ended up all rather sodden by the end of it.

No matter what the weather however, this is one area that always takes my breath away. It is so so beautiful, with the native bush making you feel like you’re walking through an ancient forest. There wasn’t much view from the top, but that doesn’t matter, what you could see is still breathtaking. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

    This looks wonderful! I love being in the bush when it’s wet and drizzly in a big coat. Brilliant! Salt of the earth.
