Watagan Mountains

Ok so I’m skipping a bit here to the Watagan Mountain trip that me and Tracey did. Mostly this involves photos!

CIMG6815 This should set the theme of the day nicely!

CIMG6822 We stopped for lunch but realised we were getting a lot of bird attention

CIMG6823 Not sure what these were but the crows outnumbered them!

CIMG6827 We are surrounded!

CIMG6825 The leader approached! I think he was after the food!

CIMG6828 After a dramatic gunfight, car chase escape that culminated in a final battle atop a bridge as it was being demolished, we went for a stroll in the woods…

CIMG6836 Arty shot again!


Now this was the start of a few issues. You see Abbots Falls trail makes it sound like a nice little walk, all marked and signposted, with some waterfalls at the end. Not so. We headed down it and were soon sliding our way down steep, muddy, wet pathway with no end in sight. After a good kilometre of it we decided to turn back, thoroughly exhausting ourselves on the return leg back up!

But what was worse? When I got home and put the data from the Holux GPS Unit that I was carrying into Google Earth… it showed us that we had done a 105m vertical descent and climb again for nothing! There were no waterfalls, no beauty spots that I could see! Nothing!

I’ll get a screenshot of it when I’m next online.
