Two before dawn up and a-ways in one week.. I'm impressed :) Yesterday morning we arrived at Lake Leschenaultia, an hour east of Perth, just after sun-up to bushwalk around the lake. I do a lot of everyday walking but this was my first proper bushwalk in a while. The lake looked incredible in the early morning light.. snapped this just after 7am.
There are two walks, one short loop that circles the lake and a longer figure 8 track into the forest on the western side. To be honest I'm not sure which track we followed.. I walk, enjoy and leave the directional logistics to P..
Following the walk trail into the forest we lost sight of the lake for about 5kms. Early morning walks in the Australian bush are quite an experience, yes there are 'things' to look out for, but by the time we came along the trees were alive with birdsong and any spiders had retreated to their daytime safe place..
As early as we were many had been there before us.. we, and by we I mean P :) spotted the slithery tracks of snakes and kangaroos crossing the track. All in all we walked 7.5km and by the time the lake came into view below, I was more than happy to see it. We went at the right time, it turned into an unseasonably warm day, 31C. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..
