The cooler weather means long walks with none or very few flies.
July the 5th, Mt Sonder
Club member Kate led a walk up Mt Sonder.
The group camped out at Redbank Gorge the night before and had an early start on Sunday morning.

July 11th, Somewhere west and off track
Having a sense of adventure and not really knowing where one is going is often majestically rewarded by nature’s unending ability to amaze and enthrall.
A chance find on the way to retrieve a pair of walking poles. A series of cascades with large pools of water. It hadn’t rained for months. These pools are deep and don’t get much sun, so tend to hang around for a long time. The rest of that day, nature showed us huge, shear and vertical walls of rock and deep, dark water-filled slot canyons. It took effort to traverse what was on offer – dodgy scrambling down waterfalls, frequent uphill detours to avoid shear, vertical drops and the limited amount of daylight during winter. But it is always worth it. (Photo credit: Nick Tyllis).
